What’s best for our lymphoedema patients? Have we lost the patient as an individual in the quest for good science?
Piller, Neil, Finnane, Anna, Partsch, Hugo, Singh, Ben, Hayes, Sandi, & Woodman, Richard (2014) What’s best for our lymphoedema patients? Have we lost the patient as an individual in the quest for good science? Journal of Lymphoedema, 9(2), pp. 6-10.
In a recent issue of the Journal of Lymphoedema, Nickolaidis and Karlsson (2013) indicated that most of the standard treatments for lymphoedema patients were explored and developed early last century, and suggested that holistic assessment of the individual is critical for good outcomes, but that perhaps “less emphasis should be placed on manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) and more on compression, exercise and weight reduction.”
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
