E-learning module

We are partnering with Wound Care Today on the chronic oedema module.


Four people in every 1000 have chronic oedema. This increases to 12 people in every 1000 in patients over 85 years of age. A correct diagnosis for the cause of the chronic oedema is therefore crucial to ensure that patients have the best chance to manage this life-long condition successfully. Early intervention in chronic oedema management will, in turn improve clinical outcomes and patient experience. JOBST has a wide range of solutions for every stage of treatment, including wrap compression systems, custom-fit and ready-to-wear compression garments, that can help clinicians and patient manage their condition for life. This module educates in these key areas.
