Journals and supplements
Since 1978 the Journal of Community Nursing (JCN) has been providing education, information and training to community nurses within the UK, and globally, in areas such as continence care, wound care, skin care, chronic conditions, to name but a few.
Although dressings and innovative products are vital, what patients really need is a workforce of well-educated clinicians who understand how to put a patient on the path to a healed wound.
Wound Care Today is packed full of practice-based articles written by expert clinicians, as well as seeking out opinion pieces from people working on the ground today.
To help you in your day-to-day practice, JCN regularly produces supplements to provide education in key areas of clinical practice.
This currently includes 'Wound care in the community' and 'Challenging your practice: venous leg ulcers', as well as 'Evaluation of a dynamic mattress replacement system within a community setting'.
