Wound UK is proud to announce that an Expert Working Group has developed Best Practice Guidance on Lipoedema. The document was inspired by the need for clear guidance and improved patient involvement in the management of lipoedema. It offers guidance on diagnosis and assessment and highlights the important role that self-care and psychosocial support play in helping patients live with and manage the condition. It also looks at the importance of compression therapy alongside non-surgical and surgical interventions in the management of this chronic, incurable disease.
