CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)-Plans for the next academic year. 

The teaching staff are now beginning to return to the School to resume their academic activities. They are working at a pace to change the way we deliver our courses. Moving forward, we will be using blended and e-learning methods. We aim to roll out the modules, which were postponed during the initial stages of COVID-19, in a phased approach, starting in September 2020, over an eight-month period. This is in line with Health Education England (HEE) who have proposed an extension to the education contract period. This is to allow time for the recovery of commissions that were postponed due to the pandemic.

As you will recognise because of COVID-19, plans are constantly changing so we will, as the situation evolves, endeavour to keep you informed. The health and wellbeing of our staff and students are our absolute priority. 

If you do have any questions or concerns, please refer to our Student Q&A page or contact us at Student Support Services for more information.

Course summary

The module is an introduction to the management of lymphoedema, aimed at professionals who are primarily treating cancer-related lymphoedema. It will give the student the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into the causes and management of this chronic condition. In addition to exploring the evidence base for the care of lymphoedema, the module provides an opportunity to learn and practice the practical skills of compression therapy in a safe, supervised environment.

This is a blended learning module and some content is delivered on-line. E-learning materials are released on specified dates and students are expected to log in and participate in the activities during that week. Students do not need to log in at a specific date/ time.

I got a tremendous amount out of this course and I think the smaller group helped as there was plenty of time for discussion. It’s always interesting to hear other people's experiences.

This module is in association with:
