    Home Healthcare Nurse recently had a great series on wound care management. I highly recommend it.

    The Us Department of Health and Human Services....Agency for Health Care Policy & Research has excellent pulications out(AHCPR Wound Care Guidelines). It has been accepted as the standard of practice in wound care in Long Term Care Facilities by the Survey Teams. To order copies of guideline products or to obtain further information on their availability, call the AHCPR Publications Clearinghouse toll-free at 800-358-9295 or you can write to: AHCPR Publications Clearinghouse, P.O. Box 8547, Silver Spring, MD 20907. These are standards I have used and used and are very successful in practice. Hope you find this helpful: Regards: Hannah

    I just attended one of their seminars on wound care. Worth every penny!
    the speaker was very informative. lots of information of dressing choices. wound tx and she also wrote a pictorial book on wounds, their tx and healing . the book was an additional 20 dollars, but very useful in identifying wounds, staging etc.
    the text she provides with the seminar is a useful resource.. email me if you have any other questions. the above mentioned resource from previous responder is also great.

    Try They have an excellent site on decubitus ulcer care and you can seek input from a wound care specialist who will make suggestions based on the type of wound you are dealing with. I highly recommend this site!
