Sigvaris launches new educational options
PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. – Sigvaris is offering new educational sessions to expand training for fitters of medical compression stockings, the company announced July 29. The sessions, for those interested in becoming a Sigvaris Certified Fitter, include webinars, two online training courses, a two-hour in-service to increase product knowledge and a one-day in-person course, according to a press release. Sigvaris has also partnered with the International Lymphedema and Wound Care Training Institute to offer a two-day seminar on wound care and edema Sept. 24-25 at the manufacturer’s facility here. “These new opportunities make it easy to work continuing education into a busy schedule and still have the flexibility to also attend a seminar,” said Judith Brannan, educational and medical affairs manager in North America.
