What To Expect When You Have a Wound

While, Taylor A
Abstract
Description
Wound care is a field that is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of wounds of all different types. Combining clinical internship experience, and a thorough review of previous research from outside sources, this project explores the challenges that patients face when they have a wound, and aims to educate institutions, clinicians, patients, and students on what wound care is and why it is an important area of medicine. The patient experience is discussed by detailing the experience of an actual patient inflicted with a serious wound for the first time in their life. Furthermore, previous research is discussed to highlight the importance of both patient education and greater knowledge of wound care in general. This research is used to prescribe a potential solution to help improve patient outcomes in the wound care setting.
