This paper provides an overview of literature on wound management, including wound assessment and wound care and their relationship to the healing process. No attempt is made to describe individual tools or dressing materials as this literature can be found elsewhere. Patient and economic benefits of accurate wound assessment and choice of dressing material are highlighted. The case for an improved and updated nursing knowledge base regarding all aspects of wound care is made.
