Report on the Australia ILF-COM project

This is a report by Dr Linda Khong as a follow-up to her participation (Australian) with the International Lymphoedema Framework- Chronic Oedema Outcome Measures (ILF-COM) project. Twelve frameworks involving 8014 people took part in the survey conducted December 2018 to end of March 2019. Each framework reported their respective ILF-COM findings via posters at the ILF Conference in Chicago 13-15 June 2019.

Overall, the survey’s international respondents demonstrated that patients and healthcare professionals viewed limb volume, quality of life status and mobility status as three most important outcome measures as well deemed successful outcomes.
