(a) how they will educate patients on self care and risk reduction in particular with breast cancer surgery;
(b) how latest research is guiding cancer rehabilitation towards surveillance and early detection of lymphoedema:
(c) the costs of lymphoedema care and how patients can reduce their costs while maximising their outcomes and quality of life..
