Abstract

ABSTRACT: The journey began for George Winter nearly 50 years ago, using pigs in a laboratory setting, as he observed the healing characteristics of acute wounds. The journey began for industry with the launch of “modern” dressings, particularly with films and hydrocolloids. And so the journey began for authors with a clinical or scientific interest in the art of wound care. For all those who have persevered in the wound care field, their endeavor is not only a vocation, but also a lifelong passion. Although some individuals do not understand such passion, others do, and they are the wound care champions and pioneers who have made this 25-year journey possible and the next 25 years exciting. Much progress has been achieved in wound care in the past 25 years, but much work still remains if the profession is to be truly recognized as a clinical specialty.
