I am a 30 year veteran of nursing working in a major metropolitan hospital. I work in Cardiac ICU and am a Skin Care Resource Nurse as well. In 30 years I have not found a better single source text on wound care anywhere. This is a foundational text for both the inquisitive beginner or the conscientious veteran! It is germane and salient with current BEST PRACTICE. If you are a nurse - you need one! If you are a nurse manager - you need one for your unit! What you are taught about wound care in nursing school, or medical school for that matter, is limited to surgical wounds. Information about other wounds you could fit into a thimble. I just authored a policy on skin tears at my hospital and many of my references for that research and meta-analysis pointed to these two authors, their work and expertise. I am buying a copy for a colleague, an MD.

Great book to use in studying for CWS or other wound care certification exams. Up to date information on wounds, healing and important topics for comprehensive wound management. Well worth its price.

We ordered this book for several home care nurses in our company, and it has been a great resource for them. There are lots of pictures, and great descriptions of the types of wounds. There is a large amount of text devoted to treatment of specific wounds as well. I would recommend this to anyone trying to refresh their knowledge of wound care, or to review treatments of specific wounds.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent and up-to-date resource book for anyone interested in wound care evidence based practice. Starting with the list of "Contributors and consultants" who provided content. This is a list of "who's who" in wound care practice. Next I find the chapters well designed with many "practice points" identified. Each chapter ends with a "Show What You Know" section of questions and answers. I have found the references to be extensive and inclusive of recent peer-reviewed publications. This 2nd edition would make a great reference text for any clinical setting.

Format: Paperback
Most wound care books that I have read have given a great deal of info on wounds to one degree or another, but this book also gives great insite to the psyco-social issues that our patients and ourselves as health care workers deal with in wound care. I have had patients with painful deep MRSA infeced wounds that I let undress and redress their wounds due to the pain factor. Not only did it make their care easier for me, but easier for them and lowered the amount of pain meds needed prior to Tx. My managers were not to happy with this until I showed them this book, and pointed out that with the right teaching for our patients, not only was there less trama/drama, but wounds healed better, parients learned infection control and were better prepaired to be discharged and safely care for their wounds at home. This book backed up my choice of getting patients involved in their wound care as well as some of my choices it my treatments. My DON was so interested in this book that I lent it to her. Needless to say I have not seen it for some time.
