A Note From Petra...
I have worked in healthcare for almost 20 years. Where has the time gone? When I started out working with postop patients, I was often scared that what I was doing wasn't actually helping. I would leave work wondering if my treatments had been detrimental to that patient. But, over the years I have gained a vast amount of knowledge from working alongside specialists in varying fields of expertise, from clincial nurse specialists, wound care specialists and fellow lymphoedema therapists, to consultant dermatologists, oncologists, vascular surgeons and plastic and reconstructive surgeons.
Throughout my career I have helped hundreds of patients improve their health and quality of life; from those who have had treatment and surgery for cancer, orthopaedic surgery or cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery, to those that were born with a debilitating condition like lymphoedema or lipoedema.
Now, I want to share that knowledge and experience with YOU! This guide will help you on your journey in the postop industry so you become a leading light in treating patients with fibrosis.
Here's What Students Are Saying...
I was so excited to get started on the training! I was really impressed with the quality and detail in it. Everything is explained in a way even an absolute beginner can understand. The platform is well laid out and easy to use. Petra has the skills to communicate her wealth of knowledge and experience, without it being overwhelming. A truly wonderful course Petra!
Petra's training is excellent! I found it very easy to work through and the lessons were broken down into shorter, manageable videos. I enjoyed the visual aspect as I learn better this way, compared to just all words. And, having an assessment at the end of the module made me keep track of my learning. I feel so much more confident now working with postop patients.
