TARGET GROUP This program offers didactic and practical instruction of Edema-Lymph Edema Management/Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) & Compression Physiotherapy (CPT) designed for PT, OT, MD, PTA, and RN, MT. This training meets requirements to sit for LANA (Lymphology Association of North America) examination


TRAINING TIME
 is one hundred twenty (120) classroom contact hours of theory and practicum, lasting twelve (12) consecutive days, plus thirty (30) home study hours before the start of the training. A home study knowledge content test will be administered on the first of the classroom training.


TRAINING PREREQUISITES The didactic and practical instruction of the training is designed for medical and allied health professionals involved in direct patient care This training is suitable for the professions of PT, OT, R.N, MT. State licensed massage therapists * will be considered to enroll in the training with proof that the applicant works under the direct supervision of a physician (M.D., D.O.) or licensed health professional. * Massage therapists much show proof of completion of a minimum 500 hours training program or be certified through the NCBMTB.

HOME STUDY The text and DVD/video will be provided before the training. The training participant is expected to complete 30 hours home study before the first day of class. This will develop an extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of the lymphatic system, as it will facilitate a smooth entry and progression of the training.


TRAINING DESCRIPTION The 120 hours classroom training involves hands on work with application to each body part. Compression Physiotherapy is the most successful treatment for acute and chronic extremity and full body lymph edema. The training participant will be trained in the four components of CPT: 1.Manual lymph drainage hand stroke methodology, 2.Lymphedema hand stroke methodology; lymph quadrant anastomoses), 3. Compression bandaging, garment fitting, compression pump application 4 Skin care.
The training content follows the worldwide accepted treatment standards in edema lymph edema management and compression physiotherapy based on the clinical research and applications set by Vodder, Asdonk, M.D., Fischer, M.D., Foldi, M.D., Kubik, M.D., Partsch, M.D., Puetter, M.D., Van D. Mohlen, M.D., Staudinger, R.N.
Upon completion of this 150-hour training , I am confident that you will return to clinical practice with the means to manage edematous conditions with measurable results.
The training meets requirements to sit for LANA examination (Lymphology Association of North America).


TRAINING OBJECTIVES At the conclusion of the training , participants will be able to 1.describe basic principles of anatomy, physiology/pathophysiology of edema-lymph edema and fluid dynamics of the human lymphatic system, 2. Recount indications/contraindications for physical therapeutic intervention, 3. Differentiate from among varying presenting conditions of edema-lymph edema and systemic fluid retention, 4. Reproduce the specifics of manual lymph drainage ad modum Vodder, Asdonk, MD, Foeldi, MD and edema-lymph edema hand stroke (lymph quadrant anastomoses). Methodology ad modum Foeldi, MD, Asdonk, MD, 5. Perform full treatment applications of manual lymph drainage edema lymph edema hand strokes, apply compression bandages, garments and compression pump treatments in simulated case presentations, by regional anatomy of the body. 6. Advise patients regarding specifics of A.D.L.'s, bandaging, garment fitting, exercise and augmentive therapies and skin care.
