The lymphatics’ role in edema has been reported. It is unclear how this evidence translates into hand-therapy practice. Survey research explored edema education and management. Frequencies were examined using ChiSquare and Fisher’s Exact tests. Most OTs received edema education outside of academic programs, through on-the-job training, or through continuing education. OT educators can support bringing this knowledge into academic programs to help bridge science and clinical practice.
