This can be a good and easy to study course but lack of figures to demonstrate the processes has made it so hard to follow.

Description

Chronic wounds are an increasing burden on the health budget. An ageing population, growing rates of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and increasingly sophisticated wound therapies are creating a surge in healthcare costs. While evidence-based practice improves wound care, nurses must navigate the tensions between experience, evidence, expediency and individual patient circumstances. Research into wound healing and failure-to-heal is revealing increasingly complex processes that are affected by both systemic and wound-based factors. It is no longer sufficient to focus exclusively on the physical appearance of the wound itself, without accounting for these other factors. Excitingly, there is a growing body of research investigating the differences between adult and fetal healing. Wounds occurring in utero are healed by regeneration, a phenomenon that also occurs in some animals. Adults heal by fibrosis, generating non-functional scars. The future may provide treatments that allow regeneration of injured tissues leading to restored function.
