I have previously worked in General Medicine and General Oncology. It was when I worked on a Breast Oncology Unit that my interest in wound management developed. We had patients undergoing surgery and also medical patients that presented with breast wounds due to their cancer. I had the opportunity to complete a course in tissue viability.
When I came to work at the hospice I was fortunate enough to meet Dame Cicely Saunders and was inspired by her generosity of spirit. I enjoy Palliative Care Nursing focusing on symptom control which also includes palliative wound care.
