NSWOCC is happy to share the following news on behalf of Valérie Chaplain, RN, NSWOC, WOCC(C), NSWOCC Core Program leader of the French Community of Practice:
It is with great pride that I am pleased to announce the release of a major manual on wound care on February 15, 2023. Titled Pratiques exemplaires en soins des plaies : de novice à expert, this book is the result of exceptional inter-professional collaboration. Divided into 2 volumes, 45 chapters and with more than 1750 pages, this manual aims to equip both health professionals who are new to the field and those who have several years of experience.
I would particularly like to acknowledge the participation of Nurses Specialized in Wound, Ostomy and Continence in Quebec. Thank you to everyone for their important contributions to several of the 45 chapters of the manual, including Louise, Luce, Deborah, Sylvianne, Jenny, Julie, Liette, Chantal, and Véronique. I would also like to acknowledge the contributions made by some of our colleagues from Switzerland and Belgium.
This book fills a major gap in French-language documentary resources for all health professionals working with Canada's Francophone population. I sincerely hope that it will make it possible to establish a common language between us and to weave a solid Francophone community of practice to not only collectively increase knowledge and skills but above all to optimize the safe management of the Franco-Canadian population struggling with wounds.
Thank you to NSWOCC/ISPSCC for endorsing the work done by this extraordinary team and the years of work this book represents. Thank you also to the Presses de l'université Laval for the outstanding support offered to carry out this major project.
To receive a discount on the purchase of the 2 volumes, you may go directly through the Presses de l'université Laval at: https://www.pulaval.com/ by using the promo code SOINS2023.
