Trauma and orthopaedic patients often have complicated wounds and can be at increased risk of skin breakdown due to underlying frailty and as a result of trauma. Nutrition plays a key role in the healing of wounds. This presentation will give a brief overview of the importance that macro and micro nutrients play in wound and bone healing and what nurses can do to help patients meet their nutritional requirements in order to maximise healing.
