There are many different types of wounds and many causes of wounds; there are trauma wounds from an accident, foot ulcers caused by diabetes and bedsores or pressure ulcers caused by pressure on the skin of a debilitated person, to name just a few.
Although wound healing is a complex and dynamic process, no matter what type of wound you have, the healing process is the same. Health care professionals have developed what is known as “best practice guidelines” which encompasses a) reviewing all the evidence available b) establish the individual risk factors for the patient and c) implement the skills and resources to achieve healing of the wound. The information in these books center around these principles.
Each e-book is between 40-80 pages long and includes interactive quizzes and activities to engage the reader/patient.

I look upon the “Herb Interaction” book as a “quickie” for my pharmacy team, no need to get bogged down on the computer.

We forget sometimes the power of the patient for healing through compliance and self care habits. We should provide understandable information.

The distribution of the Dr. Guide books was the most cost effective, most quickly integrated and best ROI program I have had in years – no committee development meetings, no sky high “creative” costs and so appropriate for our product / treatment messages.
