Ties together three highly specialized yet strongly interrelated fields of continence management, wound care, and therapeutic positioning in order to promote the healing of wounds and prevent the formation of pressure ulcers. The trans-disciplinary approach involves nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, the patient and his or her family, and the physician so as to control incontinence and protect the patient against skin breakdown. Edited by physicians Rook (private practice, Colorado Springs), Lyn D.Weiss (physical medicine and rehabilitation, State U. of New York) and physical therapist Deborah D.
