For physical therapy education programs covering wound management; and for clinicians (including PT, PTA, OT, and nursing) involved in treating patients with, or at risk for, open wounds or lymphedema.
A complete practical guide to wound care, for both learners and practitioners
Wound Management: Principles and Practices is the most thorough, up-to-date practical learning resource on wound management for physical therapy students and general practitioners. It's been cited as the reference text for preparing students to pass the Certified Wound Specialist Certification exam. Opening with the basic science of wounds and wound healing, Myers then presents the nuts and bolts of wound examination and intervention and, finally, detailed information for managing various types of wounds. Integrated case studies prepare students to make sound clinical decisions for holistic care interventions. The 4th edition includes the most current wound care information available.
