The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive learning package in tissue viability. It covers all aspects of wound prevention and management, and considers the microbiological reasons why some wounds do not heal. It discusses factors that affect healing, pressure sore prevention and management, audit, ethics and the law. This is a comprehensive book that will enable not only nurses, but also doctors, physiotherapists and occupational therapists to develop a deeper understanding of wound care practice and research appreciation.
