Attitudes toward ageing have powerful influences and impact older adults' own perception of health, quality of life and utilisation of health and social care services. This study describes attitudes to ageing among 490 Norwegian older adults living in the community who responded to The Attitudes to Ageing Questionnaire. Results showed that in spite of physical changes and psychological losses, the attitudes of older adults support life acceptance with gained wisdom in feeling that there were many pleasant things about growing older and that their identity was not defined by their age...

Karen A Robb, Liz Price
The Transforming Cancer Services Team (TCST) in London has produced comprehensive commissioning guidance for commissioners to improve the commissioning of lymphoedema services for people living with and beyond cancer. The guidance identifies how services are commissioned in London, sets out what good looks like and recommends how it can be achieved. The guidance was developed with the support of a task and finish group and was informed by telephone interviews with seven GP commissioners. A comprehensive mapping of specialist services was undertaken and has shown shortfalls in commissioning processes and significant gaps in provision across London...

Marie Todd, Karen Lay-Flurrie, Janet Drake
This clinical review article on the combined use of JOBST FarrowWrap and Cutimed® Sorbion® Sachet XL uses a case study methodology to demonstrate how effective this approach is in managing superficial ulceration and/or lymphorrhea in the presence of chronic oedema and lymphoedema. The blend of these symptoms causes significant physical and psychosocial issues for patients and is highly labour and resource intensive. However, there is often inadequate treatment choice leading to protracted input by nurses and delayed or failed healing...

Natalie Lee, Sue Lawrence
The use of velcro compression wrapping devices in the management of lymphoedema and chronic oedema is not a new concept. Wraps have been available for many years and are being used widely in clinic and community settings where bandaging or traditional compression garments are not suitable. Furthermore, they are becoming more common when treating venous disease, patients with wounds and lipoedema. The aim of this article is to introduce the reader and clinician to the new Haddenham easywrap and to demonstrate why it is different to any other velcro wrapping device available...

An audit of 100 new patients attending a specialist lymphoedema clinic revealed 52% presented with chronic oedema. More than half (58%) of the chronic oedema group presented with skin changes whereas 14% of those with lipoedema, 4% with lymphoedema of the arm, and 8% with lymphoedema of the leg developed skin changes. None of the primary lymphoedema group developed skin changes. Chronic venous disease (CVD) was significantly more prevalent in the chronic oedema group. More patients with bilateral chronic oedema suffered from cellulitis (41%) compared to unilateral (27%)...

Improving microcirculation in the area of a wound is an important aspect of wound healing. It can be improved by a new manual methodology: myofascial-manual lymphatic drainage (M-MLD). This hybrid technique uses elements of musculoskeletal medicine and manual lymphatic drainage. Through palpation, M-MLD therapeutically affects the functional pathology of soft tissues, with reflection in trigger points, and also the functional pathology of lymphatic system, namely by lymphostasis in particular regional lymph nodes...
