Abstract

In today’s health system, nursing has broadened its considerable expertise, resulting in an increase in the number and variety of specialities within clinical practice. Two essential practices that have been affected by this need for increased specialist knowledge are wound management and infection prevention and control. In many facilities both speciality practices are managed by nurses and midwives who hold speciality qualifications and are considered experts in their practice areas. However, if this level of expertise is not available, it is the responsibility of the ward clinicians to assess and manage wounds and prevent and control infections.
