Professor Neil Piller is strongly committed to improving the outcomes for lymphoedema patients and a strong part of this is ensuring that treatment strategies are well targeted and sequenced. The main issue (one he is extremely passionate about) relates to strategies to improve outcomes by ensuring therapists deliver what is optimal for the patients. Since the main stages of treatment of lymphoedema revolve around compression/bandaging skin, wound care, activity and exercise he am committed to providing more objective information for what is right and what is best.
Recent publications he has been involved in cover a range of topics in the area of lymphoedema, including the choice of names (Chronic oedema or lymphoedema) to strategies to measure lymphoedema objectively and dealing with the correct selection of patients and medications to ensure optimal outcomes.
Prof. Neil is currently Vice Chair and Board Member of the International Lymphoedema Framework and board member of the Australian College of Phebology, the International Advisory group in lymphoedema (for the Union Internationale Phlebologie and the International Compression Club). He is also an external advisory board member of the American Lymphoedema Framework.
Prof. Neil is Chief and Clinical Sciences Editor for the Journal of Lymphoedema (UK), Australasian Editor for the Lymphatic Research and Biology (USA), and an editorial board member of Lymphology (USA). He is a Member of the Editorial committee and chapter contributor to “Manual of Venous and Lymphatic Diseases“ 2018, an editor and chapter writer of “Lymphoedema Complete Medical and Surgical Management”.
He is also an Adjunct Professor in the School of Medicine, Department of Surgery at Flinders University and Director of the Lymphoedema Clinical Research Unit. He currently supervises PhD/MD students in areas from primary lymphoedemas to investigation of tools to improve the classification/staging of lymphoedemas, to negative pressure as a treatment modality for lymphoedema to evaluation of the impact of water based activity in management of secondary lymphoedema.
