This article, the first in our series on wound dressings, examines nursing care following a surgical procedure and the choice of surgical dressings for wound care. Surgical wound healing, if uncomplicated, has four phases. In surgery it is essential to provide patient support information and pre- and postoperative care. Dermatology nurses may also take on advanced practitioner roles and perform surgery. All dermatology nurses need to understand the evidence base of wound healing and the appropriate dressing choice for surgical wounds.
