The 8th International Lymphoedema Framework Conference will take place back to back with the next annual meeting of the International Compression Club (ICC) with the topic "Compression therapy in chronic oedema".
The choice for Rotterdam hosting the 8th International Lymphoedema Framework Conference is a choice with a special symbolic meaning. The conference location is the former steamship SS Rotterdam; the first steamship of the Holland-America line between Rotterdam and New York.
In addition, the Netherlands is well known because of its water management which is more or less like the lymphatic system, with lots of canals and rivers comparing it to capillaries and lymph vessels. Every now and then they threaten to be overloaded and solutions are sought to overcome these obstructions. It is therefore fitting that this conference be held in conjunction with the ILF's newest national lymphoedema framework. Thanks to the efforts of the Dutch Lymphoedema Framework NLNet, primary and secondary lymphoedema are well recognized and also lipoedema has a large role in the framework. Lymphology in the Netherlands is well known for its chronic care model, which includes self-management. A conference in the Netherlands may therefore be an excellent opportunity to offer our colleagues from abroad an overview of the specific situation of water management worldwide and in our own body.
The scientific committee, consisting of representatives both from ILF and NLNet, is working on a programme for the 8th International Lymphoedema Framework Conference that will be of relevance for both healthcare professionals, patients, researchers as well as industry.
With the 8th International Lymphoedema Conference, we aim to achieve a greater awareness of the condition and treatment throughout the world, and to ensure that lymphoedema becomes a priority on the national health care agenda everywhere.
