About this event

  • Date and time Tue 20 Sep 2022 from 8:30am to 4:10pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Vascular, Lipid and Metabolic Medicine Section

Join us for a comprehensive discussion about the unusual yet common clinical cardiovascular condition, lymphoedema. This condition can be challenging to manage, so our specialist speakers will ensure attendees are provided with information on the most up-to-date treatment pathways.

Following the lectures, attendees will have the opportunity to view trainee presentations for the Harvey prize and network with other medical professionals.

During this meeting delegates will:

  • Understand the magnitude of lymphoedema and its presentation. 
  • Expand their diagnosis skills for lymphoedema in their clinics. 
  • Develop a management plan and prevention strategy for lymphoedema and associated conditions. 

There will also be a chance for cardiovascular trainees to develop expertise and presentation skills, and to engage in interactive discussions and networking skills.
