The modular approach of the BSN Educational Academies allows optimum flexibility and choice, without compromising learning content. A brief overview of each module currently available is given here, to assist you in your selection for your study day. Where appropriate, modules from both the Cutimed and the JOBST Academies can be combined into one study day. 

Module 1: Lymphoedema Overview

  • This module provides a basic introduction to lymphoedema and the treatment of the condition. It includes the structure of the lymphatic system, the types of lymphoedema and the subsequent treatment options available for patients

Module 2: Anatomy and Physiology of the Lymphatic System

  • To Identify and explore the structures of the lymphatic system and discover how this essential anatomy works under normal circumstances. Understand how changes occur when oedema develops and how to apply this knowledge in assessment and treatment phase

Module 3: Patient Assessment

  • To increase knowledge and understanding of the principle and importance of patient assessment. You will be guided on how to relate these principles to patient situations and explain the challenges that occur within patient assessment

Module 4: Mild to Moderate Lymphoedema (Chronic Oedema)

  • To identify the stages of lymphoedema in the mild to moderate, uncomplicated oedema phase. Use recognised tools and subsequent treatment modalities for patients in this category

Module 5: Severe and Complicated Lymphoedema (Chronic Oedema)

  • To identify the stages of lymphoedema in the severe and complicated phase. Use recognised tools andsubsequent treatment modalities for patients in this category

Module 6: Multi-Layer Lymphoedema Bandaging - Lower Limb

  • An overview of the underpinning knowledge and theory in the equipment, approach and technique required in multi-layer lymphoedema bandaging for a patient with lymphoedema of the lower limb
  • Incorporates a demonstration of multi-layer lymphoedema bandaging (MLLB), in accordance with the International Lymphoedema Framework guidelines and a practical, hands-on session with all bandaging materials provided

Module 7: Multi-Layer Lymphoedema Bandaging - Upper Limb

  • An overview of the underpinning knowledge and theory in the equipment, approach and technique required in multi-layer lymphoedema bandaging for a patient with lymphoedema of the upper limb
  • Incorporates a demonstration of multi-layer lymphoedema bandaging (MLLB), in accordance with the International Lymphoedema Framework guidelines and a practical, hands-on session with all bandaging materials provided

Module 8: Compression Therapy - Theory

  • An overview of the underpinning knowledge / theory behind the value of compression garments. To understand the importance of choosing the correct type of compression garment, including the style and compression level most appropriate for a patient with oedema

Module 9: Wrap Compression Systems and Measuring for JOBST® FarrowWrap®

  • To provide an understanding of the differences between compression systems for both vascular and lymphatic indications. Also includes a practical demonstration in measuring for upper and lower limb JOBST FarrowWrap
  • Using both the knowledge learnt in the Compression Therapy – Theory module and the skills from the practical demonstration in this module, you will gain  valuable knowledge about the JOBST FarrowWrap range. This also incorporates a hands-on practical session in measuring for JOBST FarrowWrap for both upper and lower limb

Module 10: Measuring for a JOBST® Ready-to-Wear Compression Garment

  • A practical demonstration in measuring for a JOBST Ready-to-Wear compression garment covering both the upper and lower limbs. Using both the knowledge learnt in the Compression Therapy - Theory module and the skills from the practical demonstration in this module, you will gain valuable knowledge about the JOBST Ready-to-Wear range. This also incorporates a hands-on practical session in measuring for JOBST Ready-to-Wear garments for both the upper and lower limb

Module 11: Measuring for a JOBST® Elvarex® Custom-Fit Compression Garment - Lower Limb

  • A practical demonstration in measuring for a JOBST Elvarex Custom-Fit, flat-knit lower limb garment. Using both the knowledge learnt in the Compression Therapy - Theory module and the skills from the practical demonstration in this module, you will become more familiar with JOBST Elvarex and the equipment used (e.g. a measuring board). This also incorporates a hands-on practical session in measuring for a JOBST Elvarex Custom-Fit garment

Module 12: Measuring for a JOBST® Elvarex® Custom-Fit Compression Garment - Upper Limb

  • A practical demonstration in measuring for a JOBST Elvarex Custom-Fit, flat-knit upper limb garment. Using both the knowledge learnt in the Compression Therapy - Theory module and the skills from the practical demonstration in this module, you will become more familiar with JOBST Elvarex and the equipment used. This also incorporates a hands-on practical session in measuring for a JOBST Elvarex Custom-Fit garment

Module 14: Palliative Care

  • An overview of lymphoedema, causes and components in advancing disease whether of a cancer or non-cancer origin

Module 15: Genital Oedema

  • An overview of the anatomy of the genitourinary system and the anatomical changes that occur when oedema develops. Guidance is provided on the identification and subsequent treatment options that are available for patients with genital oedema.

Module 16: Leg Ulcer Management

  • An overview of the anatomy and physiology of the venous system, including the associated intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors that could lead to the development of venous, arterial or mixed aetiology leg ulceration

The list of available modules is continually being expanded. If you can't find a module to meet your training needs from the list above, please email us the details as we'd be pleased to see how we can accommodate your request.
