    Quick Reference to Wound Care, Fourth EditionBusy nurses and health care professionals know that successful and cost-effective wound care is essential for their patients. That's why we've published our easy-to-use Quick Reference to Wound Care: Palliative, Home, and Clinical Practices, Fourth Edition by Pamela Brown.

    In a recent 4-star review by Doody's Review Service, Katherine L. Aguilar, MHA, BS, RN, from the University of Missouri-Columbia writes that it,

    "...presents integrated information on wound care/treatment and wound issues related to etiology. It is a well-rounded resource, discussing wound care healing in a realistic narrative. It is easy to read, combining the narratives of case studies with a bullet-point format. The color pictures appropriately support wound descriptions and etiology. This is a useful book that is easy to use to find relevant information. The color pictures clearly capture many types of wounds. With the expansion of its focus into palliative care and home care, this new edition is justified."

    Updated to reflect current wound care treatments and products, the Fourth Edition includes wound assessment, the healing process, the basics of wound management, topical treatments, and management of the major wound types.

    • New chapter on palliative wound care
    • New contributors discuss long-term care and federal changes in documentation and assessment for patients in long-term care facilitates
    • Home care chapter outlines several significant Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) changes
