Experimental: Arm 1
These patients receive the experimental intervention--the after-care summary.
Behavioral: After-care summary
The wound care NP will measure the wound and assess adherence to the following self-management activities: visiting the wound care clinic as scheduled; offloading; applying dressings; obtaining assistance at home; and participating in social activities. This information will be entered into a computer database on a VA computer that will generate a summary chart showing the relationship between adherence and wound healing. The generated "after-care summary" will be discussed with the patient and used to set self-management goals.
Active Comparator: Arm 2
These patients are the control group and receive usual care.
Behavioral: Control group
Patients in the control group will receive usual counseling for self-management.
- patient satisfaction, frequency of self-management activities, time to healing [ Time Frame: Outcomes are measured at each participating patient's visit for one year or until the patient's wound is healed, whichever comes first. ]
