Written by two well-known wound care specialists and an interdisciplinary team of experts, this handbook is essential for all professionals involved in wound care, including nurses, physical therapists, physicians, podiatrists, and long-term care professionals. The book provides practical, comprehensive guidelines for assessment and management of both common and atypical wound problems and covers many topics not sufficiently addressed in other texts, such as sickle cell wounds, amputation, gene therapy, and the specific wound care needs of special populations. Features include more than 100 photographs and illustrations, recurring icons such as Evidence-Based Practice and Practice Points, case studies, and review questions.
