Whether wounds are acute or chronic, nurses are the clinicians most intimately involved with the assessment, care, and ongoing evaluation of wounds. Key components for success in wound management and improving outcomes are: possessing a fundamental knowledge of wound etiology and the cofactors contributing to wound formation; understanding the physiology of healing; applying critical assessment skills; implementing evidence-based standards of care; and completing thorough documentation. Nurses must possess knowledge related to key concepts and principles of the structure of the integumentary system, how it repairs itself when damaged, and when it requires assistance to heal. The challenges of wound healing have long been known and are based on anecdotal cases, personal preferences, and now evidence-based research.
