Venous eczema is part of a continuum of venous disease that affects around 20% of people over 70 years of age. It is not always appropriately diagnosed and treated. This article aims to enable community nurses to understand the pathophysiology of venous disease and how to offer evidence based management to patients with this condition. [References: 22]
