Wound Care: A Collaborative Practice Manual for Physical Therapists and Nurses
This handy-to-use, practical manual provides basic information on wound care therapies. it is aimed at clinicians who deal with wounds on a daily basis and who do not have access to a wound-care expert. With its case management approach, use of algorithms for decision making, and emphasis on outcome criteria, this book is on the leading edge of health care delivery. Each chapter begins with an algorithm, followed by a general overview and introduction, then in-depth discussion of various topics. The first section focuses on the pathogenesis of chronic wounds. The second section focuses on case management, managed care, continuous quality improvement programs, development of critical pathways, and outcome measures. The final section of the book addresses the management of specific wound problems and treatment.
