For courses in Wound Healing/Care.

This comprehensive text concisely presents students and clinicians with relevant information on the management of patients with open wounds, and addresses wounds not usually found in other texts wounds due to burns, lymphedema, surgery, bites, radiation, and other types of trauma. Its clinically useful format emphasizes material that can be directly applied to the real world of patient care, and focuses on the patient rather than the wound. Also stressed throughout the book: 1) an interdisciplinary approach to wound management; 2) education of patients, caregivers, and healthcare team members; and 3) ways to reduce the risk of wound recurrence.
