A reflection on the progress of wound care education

Vanessa Jones
1 December 2007

Vanessa Jones entered nursing in 1970 when nurses were trained ‘on the job’. She worked as a sister in hospital and the community before becoming involved in education, qualifying as a clinical teacher in 1981. In the past 37 years she has seen many changes in healthcare provision and education, many she feels not always to the benefit of nurse or patient. For the past 15 years she has specialised in education for professionals involved in wound management. In 1992 she joined the Wound Healing Research Unit, Cardiff as educational facilitator. In this article she reflects on past and possible future developments that may impinge on education in wound care.
