dc.description.abstract Through clinical experiences amongst patients with wounds, an inquiry arose regarding interventions that could be used to expedite the healing process—specifically nutrition. Through extensive searching of Bryan Fusion, inclusive of scholarly works found in databases such as PubMed and CINAHL, articles were found comparing wound healing and nutrition. An interview with an expert clinician was also conducted. A primary outcome of this literature review process was the finding that malnutrition is highly prevalent in patients with pressure ulcers. According to our research, proper nutrition and supplementations are proven to be beneficial in wound prevention and healing. The nutrients that had the greatest effect on wound healing include arginine, zinc, antioxidants, and protein supplementation. en_US
