What Patients Expect

  • Today I’d like to tell you about a study that came out of Turkey.
  • Thank you Gayle Rockelli for suggesting that I look at this paper.
  • The title of the paper is:  What do lymphedema patients expect from a treatment and what do they achieve? A descriptive study.
  • Even though the title of the paper only mentions lymphedema, there were also lipedema and lipo-lymphedema patients included in this study.
  • It was published in the peer-reviewed periodical Journal of Vascular Nursing in March 2022.
  • The aim of this study was to examine the treatment needs and benefits from the patients’ perspective.
