Thesis title: Management of clinical data for lymphoedema

Supervisors: Sharon KILBREATH , Elizabeth DYLKE , Simon POON , Tim SHAW

Thesis abstract:

The development of improved data systems for the management of lymphoedema is the primary aim of this research. The initial goal is to determine the minimum data set for the management of lymphoedema. A systematic review and qualitative study will be undertaken to explore current practice. This information will be used to inform the development of  a platform bringing together the relevant data to collect for patients with upper limb lymphoedema. The platform will be designed with the needs of the patient, the clinician, the health service, and researcher team in mind. This will be tested and validated for usability.
