Abstract

BACKGROUND:

This article reviews a cross-section of literature on wound healing and highlights how diabetes mellitus can cause deviations from usual healing patterns.

CONCLUSION:

Nursing interventions can either enhance or delay the healing process. Nurses need to understand the defective processes to optimise the available healing potential.
