The lymphatic system plays a vital role in every aspect of a persons recovery after surgery. Not only is it responsible for removing swelling.

Throughout the training, you will see it weaving its way into each module and by the end, you will understand just how important this amazing system is to you and your patients.

In this training you will learn what it is, why is occurs and how your patient can best avoid it (and how you as a therapist can work with it). There is A LOT more to this current phenomenon, than meets the eye. And, there is a LOT of misinformation out there about it. But, during this training you learn the TRUTH about this increasingly common postop issue.

A Note From Petra...

When I started out working with postop patients, I didn't know what I was doing! Yes, I knew how to do Manual Lymph Drainage. But I had no idea how to work with postop patients. I often felt like a fraud, pretending to know what I was talking about. 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, as the years have passed, I have gained experience and 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.

Now, I want to share ALL that combined knowledge and experience with YOU! Let me help you reduce that fear you feel when you see someone who has suffered immense trauma after surgery. Let me help you gain confidence and guide you on your journey into the postop industry so you achieve success and become a leading light in treating postop patients. 

By doing this training, you bypass the 20 years I spent gathering all this valuable information. In a couple of months time you will no longer feel fear and doubt. Instead you will be knowledgeable and confident the treatments you give are safe and benefiting your patients.

Let's take a look at what's inside

Module 1: Anatomy & Physiology

There are 15 simple, short, easy to follow lessons in this module, where we dive deep into the lymphatic system. By the end of the module you will understand the complexities of the lymphatics and how surgery affects fluid balance and funtioning of this amazing body system.

Module 2: The Wound Healing Process

In this module you will learn about the four stages of wound healing and the three different wound healing intentions. By the end of this module, you will have an understanding of the importance of the lymphatic system in this complex process and when it is safe to do a specific treatment on your patient.

Module 3: Scar Formation & Types of Scars

This module is a natural follow-on from the Wound Healing Process. Now that you understand what's involved in wound healing, you will learn how and why scars form the way they do and how your patient can optimise their scarring process. 

 

Module 4: Fibrosis: What is it, How it Occurs, How to avoid it

Every therapist working with postop patients will encounter this phenomenon. But, why does it happen? And more importantly, how. By the end of the module you will have learned what  fibrosis is, what contributes to it and how your patient can best avoid it.

Module 5: Getting to Know Plastic Surgery Procedures

Knowledge is power! And when you understand what each surgical procedure entails, you will understand the effect that procedure has on the body. This module gives you that insight, and by the end of the module, all the pieces will be clicking into place as your knowledge and understanding deepens.  

Module 6: Complex & Common Complications

No surgery is straight-forward. Each procedure comes with it's risks. While surgeons take every precaution to avoid postoperative complications, it's important for you to understand the ones that can occur. By the end of the module, you will know which complications might occur and what to look out for.

Module 7: Compression 

We take it for granted that patients wear compression after their surgery. But why is it important? How does it work? The module dives into the laws of pressure, how compression works and the effect it has on the skin, tissues, veins and of course the lymphatic system.

Module 8: Getting Ready For Your Patient

In this module, I share my recommendations for the various equipment you should have in your stock cupboard; from foam and K-Tape, to bolsters and padding. Plus, you get numerous template forms to download to adapt and use in your own practice.

Module 9: Treatment Protocols

Lymphatic drainage pathways change during and after surgery. So, it's important you know you're draining fluid in the right direction and not contributing to more lymphatic dysfunction. In this module you see demonstrations of MLD protocols, K-Taping and Fibrosis techniques.

Bonuses: Worth £1275 and you get them FREE

Module on Supporting our Lipoedema patients pre & postoperatively, Module on Using the LymphaTouch device, Module on Business & Marketing, Templates for business and marketing, Extra resources to share with your patients: audios, recipes, exercise demo videos, Access to a dedicated Postop Therapist community, Discount on in-person workshops

Here's What Students Are Saying...

Nic Kenworthy

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!

Erin Daly

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. The heavy stuff was made easy to understand and digest because of this. And, having an assessment at the end of each module made it easy to keep track of my learning. I feel so much more confident now working with postop patients.
