About your Facilitator
thisis my test article
Inflammation is the cause of decompensated heart failure, and lymphatics and their reaction to environment are the primary mediators. This concept is consistent with a new model of disease-regeneration balanced by degeneration with inflammation (lymphatic function) serving as the fulcrum.“

Understanding Medical Conditions
My career change came after a long history of working in executive medical administration in both the public and private sector with a strong organisational skill set seeing me organising medical conferences and events and as secretariat for 20+ meetings some months, plus all the other “admin” tasks.
A lot of this time was working around cancer services. I felt there had to be more for the patient going through such a life-altering experience than doctor’s appointments, tests, surgery. The impact on friends and family, with them not knowing how to respond in word or touch and then there were those with nobody at all for support.
I needed a change and this was the perfect next step for me…..

What qualification will this give me?
Module B will cover compression therapy, measuring and special considerations.
This new structure allows massage therapists to function with completion of Module A. A certificate of attendance will be issued upon completion of this module, but obviously cannot be the full ALA accreditation.
It will now be possible to attend Module B at a later date that better suits students.
If Module B is not attended within 2 years, refresher study will be required prior to attendance.
ALA education requirements are periodically reviewed, which may impact all accredited courses. For this reason, it is recommended that graduates from Module A complete Module B as soon as they are able.
When Module B is completed, graduates will receive the certificate recognised by the ALA.
