Lymphoedema Services in Community Cancer Support Centres

The NCCP is delighted to be supporting information and services about lymphoedema for people who have had cancer in Ireland. 

An excellent video on the topic of lymphoedema has been developed with support from the Solas Cancer Support Centre and the NCCP.

Hosted by Ada Kinneally, Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Cancer Survivorship at University Hospital Waterford and featuring Kay Morris, Project Manager for the National Lymphoedema Service and Thelma Dunne, Senior Physiotherapist in the Lymphoedema Service at the Mater Hospital, this video provides information about what lymphoedema is, what the risk factors are and what steps people can take to reduce their risk of lymphoedema.

Community cancer support centres are well-placed to provide much needed lymphoedema treatment and support to people living with cancer-related lymphoedema.

The NCCP has provided some funding for the delivery of lymphoedema services and has undertaken a research study to examine the impact on quality of life for people who avail of these services. 

Lymphoedema services in community cancer support centres are delivered by qualified MLD Therapists.  These centres are located all around the country and are currently accepting new clients with cancer–related lymphoedema.
