Summary "Lower Extremity Wounds: A Problem-Based Learning Approach is the first wound care book that has been written as a joint venture by experienced nurses and podiatrists, all with expert knowledge in wound care. It highlights the importance of multi-professional collaboration to encourage the crossing and dismantling of professional boundaries, to increase understanding of each other's roles, and ultimately to ensure that the patient receives the best available evidence-based interventions during their health care journey." "Taking a problem-based learning approach, each of the ten chapters highlights best practice in the management of wounds by type, discusses clinical guidelines and current evidence, and links this theory to a clinical scenario, thus bridging the theory-to-practice gap. Numerous full colour illustrations are used throughout the book to visually enhance the reader's learning."
"Aimed at both students and practitioners, this book is essential reading for anyone involved in lower extremity wound care."--BOOK JACKET
