« I'm a professional »

Faced with lymphedema, healthcare professionals can feel isolated.

It’s common for lymphedema caregivers to feel they lack the resources to screen for lymphedema, refer their patients to specialists, and evaluate treatment progress.

The LAQ is there to support healthcare professionals dealing with chronic edema. Our role is to connect them with a dynamic professional community and expert, reliable resources.

The lymphedema situation in Québec

More than 238,000 Quebecers suffer from lymphedema. Unaware that they have lymphedema, these people don’t receive the treatment they need and develop “inexplicable” complications that are difficult to treat over time, such as chronic wounds, recurrent cellulitis, and physical dysfunction.

This figure may come as a shock, but it’s explained by the difficulty the medical community has in detecting lymphedema, particularly in the presence of venous insufficiency and severe obesity.

Lymphedema, a chronic, degenerative disease, remains under-diagnosed, under-treated and under-researched. This is despite access to the RAMQ’s generous assistance program for compression garments essential to lymphedema treatment.

As of December 2021, only 2.5% of the lymphedema population had been diagnosed enough to benefit from this comprehensive program.
