Culture and Wounds

  • Helen Robins Montana Hospital

Abstract

All too often we are faced with the issues surrounding culture and wounds. Many wound care specialists find that cultural beliefs are almost a barrier to effective management of the wound and interfere with treatment programmes. This article seeks to address some of the issues faced in a multicultural society and discusses possibilities of collaboration and coherence in wound care management.
