Joan Junkin, RN, MSN, was introduced to wound care as a research analyst for the AHCPR (now AHRQ) panel that created the first ever pressure ulcer treatment guideline. After wound education and certification, she was the wound clinical nurse specialist for a 500-bed hospital and spent 10 years building an outpatient and inpatient program to improve wound outcomes. She conducted and published the first research documenting incontinence associated dermatitis prevalence in acute care and has published in several nursing and wound journals. Since 2008 she has devoted her time to teaching in 49 states and 5 provinces in Canada. This, along with her wound consulting business gives her a broad perspective. Joan is passionate about sharing essential information for healthcare providers with just enough humor to help navigate this challenging topic.
