Abstract

The problem of itch occurring with chronic wounds has been recognised, but is often ignored in practice. This paper describes the process of how the 'theory of wound itch' was formulated from Levine's conservation model. Concepts and propositions from the conceptual model were used to develop the theory. The theory will provide a basis for nursing research and practice.
