Our Research

In June 2015 one of our senior therapists, Robyn Sierla, was awarded a scholarship from Sydney Research. This has enabled her to reduce her hours without impacting on the department while pursuing her PhD.

The scholarship is a Health Informatics grant and it is being used to investigate how lymphoedema is assessed and the criteria for change. This will be used to inform the development of an electronic assessment tool and content measurement source. The goal is to to standardise and make better use of assessment data for the clinician, the patient and the health system. It will also increase the potential for cross-site research.
