RN, MSc, CWOCN
Margaret Heale has a clinical consulting service, Heale Wound Care in SE Vermont and performs foot and nail care in patient homes. Margaret also runs a Wound Treatment Associate course that accepts long distance candidates. She arrived in the United States over 15 years ago from England and wrote ‘Wet-to-dry Dressings: Fact & Fiction’, (Armstrong, Price 2004) as her dissertation for her masters degree in wound care.
Getting her WOCN has broadened her outlook into ostomy and continence care and she values the interaction with the Connecticut valley Ostomy support Group that she helps to organize. Special interests are creating partnerships in care by being an innovative, enthusiastic educator. A holistic approach is central to nursing practice which she feels should always focus on the individual and ways in which their needs can be met.
