“4 Key Messages”
The Lymphoedema Network Northern Ireland patient representatives and their clinical lead team have been working with Anita Wallace from the Lymphoedema Support Network to produce a new, to the point, patient self-help poster.
After conferring with many service users it was felt that sometimes people just want brief information to really get to the key message. As a result of this partnership working, we have produced 2 versions of the “4 Key Messages” which are to become new posters for our treatment cubicles and waiting areas. LNNI and LSN agreed that this work was worth sharing with the BLS membership as it combined both clinician and service user thoughts and needs. Interestingly there was a 50:50 vote re presentation format, hence the decision to go for 2 options but keeping the same message!
