Lymphoedema specialist Monica Smith has been confirmed to speak on the condition and its treatment at the British Association of Sclerotherapists (BAS) annual conference on May 15.
The conference will feature industry specialists sharing tips and insights into the latest developments, whilst live demonstrations will enable delegates to refine their injection techniques and improve patient outcomes.
Also at the conference, delegates will be able to choose a break-out session to update resuscitation and anaphylaxis skills, and obtain a Basic Life Support certificate.
Dr Martyn King, BAS board member and aesthetic practitioner, said, “The event will attract sclerotherapy practitioners, drawn from the ranks of vascular surgeons and nurses as well as doctors and nurses, specialising in aesthetic treatments. 50% of the population suffer from unsightly leg veins, and with no treatment available on the NHS; sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment now offered by many vascular and aesthetics practices.”
Other speakers announced include: consultant vascular surgeons Mr Jonothon Earnshaw, Mr Ian Franklin, Mr Colin Weir and Mr Philip Coleridge Smith and consultant vascular physician Dr Stephen Tristram, and vascular nurse specialist Claire Judge.
A New Year Initiative is offering free membership of the BAS until March 31, which includes member discounts at the annual conference.
