Management of venous leg ulcers: assess, dress and compress


Venous leg ulcers are a common problem in the community, with which nurses should be familiar for their patients' wellbeing.

This will help to combat the pain, social isolation and depression that accompany this debilitating condition.

Thus, it is important that community nurses know how to assess, diagnose and treat leg ulcers, as well as being familiar with the different types of compression available.

If community nurses apply the information contained in this article, as well as completing the associated online test, they will be better equipped to provide evidence-based care and advice for patients living with venous leg ulceration.
