Providing Awesome CDT in Home Care
Friday, May 3, 9:00am – 9:30am
Home health care accounts for 20% of post-acute care treatment in the U.S. with strong projected growth expected over the next 30 years. Among this population are patients requiring treatment for lymphedema, often with multiple precautionary co-morbidities, open wounds, and or a mixture of edema types within the limb. Proper care of these patients can be challenging because most lymphedema therapists practice in outpatient settings. This presentation will explain how to develop a safe plan of care based on an understanding of the physiology and etiology of the patient’s condition. Attendees will gain a basic understanding of the home health setting and the role that complete decongestive therapy plays in the care of homebound patients.
