PETITION FOR THE COMPLETE MANAGEMENT OF LYMPHEDEMA BY LA RÉGIE DE L’ASSURANCE MALADIE DU QUÉBEC
To the Government of Québec,
We, the undersigned, are calling for the complete management of lymphedema by the RAMQ, that is to say the free and universal access to diagnosis, treatments in Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy and all compression garments/bandages necessary to control this chronic and degenerative condition. We ask for this comprehensive care for all affected Quebecers, regardless of age or place of residence.
Caused by malformation or lymphatic system disruption, lymphedema leads to a series of health complications that include: reduced lymphatic function, fibrosis, local inflammatory and immunological changes, infectious outbreaks (cellulitis, lymphangitis, erysipelas), septicemia and lymphangiosarcoma. Lymphedema is a true disease; a daily burden for those affected. Lymphedema must be treated in a full and comprehensive manner by our health care system and the cost of care should be fully covered by the state.
