About Ostomy Wound Management
Ostomy Wound Management was founded in March of 1980 as "Ostomy Management." In 1985, this small journal dramatically expanded its content and readership by embracing the overlapping disciplines of ostomy care, wound care, incontinence care, and related skin and nutritional issues and became the premier journal of its kind. Ostomy Wound Management's readers include healthcare professionals from multiple disciplines.
Today, our readers benefit from contemporary and comprehensive review and research papers that are practical, clinically oriented, and cutting edge. Each published article undergoes a rigorous double-blind peer review by members of both the Editorial Advisory Board and the Ad-Hoc Peer Review Panel. Readers of Ostomy/Wound Management are more than just casual readers; they read the journal cover to cover, pass it along to colleagues, and use articles for inservices and other educational programs within their institutions. Accessibility and applicability in the clinical setting are the cornerstones of the enduring popularity of Ostomy/Wound Management.
