The prevention and care of wounds requires a comprehensive assessment and plan of care that encompasses many aspects of well-being, one of these being nutritional status. Nutritional status and nutrients, especially micronutrients, are fundamental to wound healing. However, comprehensive screening for malnutrition, assessment of current nutritional status, and evaluation of an individual’s nutritional competence needed for wound healing are often overlooked or treated as negligible issues. Promoting the best outcomes requires a detailed nutritional assessment focusing specifically on the elements that have the most impact on wound healing and then addressing problematic areas through the nutritional plan of care.
