Abstract

Date Presented 4/21/2018

A systematic literature review explored psychometric data on health-related quality of life measures that could be used in lymphedema practice. The Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand and the Lymphedema Life Impact Scale demonstrated the strongest reliability, validity, and clinical utility. Findings were shared with clinicians to inform their practice.
