At some time, all nurses can expect to manage a person with a wound. And because they spend so much time with their patients, nurses have a special opportunity to provide modern, evidence-based wound care with a person-centered focus.
Wound management no longer relies on tradition and superstition. Modern wound management is based on scientific principles and evidence-based research. The focus of modern wound management has evolved from simply surviving wounding to the rapid restoration of form and function by overcoming barriers to healing. This book provides guidance on the most contemporary approaches to wound management in a variety of contexts.
