WEBINAR: Exercise and its role in the prevention and treatment of lymphoedema

Date:
03 August 2016
Time:
12:00pm AEST - 1:00pm AEST

MORE PLACES NOW AVAILABLE - but book now as it will fill quickly! Exercise is now considered safe for those with or at risk of developing lymphoedema following cancer. However, how much exercise is enough, how much is too much and what type of exercise is best? Presented by Professor Sandi Hayes, this webinar will present the findings of a systematic literature review which was conducted to assess 1) the role of exercise in lymphoedema prevention; 2) the acute and longer term effects of exercise training on lymphoedema; 3) summarise the strength of evidence for various types of exercise; and 4) summarise the evidence relating to the need to wear compression during exercise. National and international exercise guidelines will also be discussed and compared against the exercise and lymphoedema evidence. Availability: This webinar is free and available exclusively to members. Members are asked to note that it will not be made available after the presentation for viewing therefore we encourage you to keep your diary clear and attend this interesting presentation at the scheduled time.
