The aim of this 40-credit Level 6 module is to inform and update health professionals on wound care theory and practice.
The course starts in January and runs every Wednesday (9am-1pm) for 13 weeks.
The student will be expected to contribute to case discussions in class, for example by describing wound care problems for patients they have known or via an anonymised web-based bulletin board.
The student will be able to practice Doppler Ankle Brachial Pressure Index recording, and compression bandaging if required. A work book will be utilised and assists students throughout the module.
You will be required to produce a 5000-word case study reflecting on assessment, care planning and treatment of a patient within your clinical area. Additionally, two clinical learning outcomes have to be achieved, providing supporting evidence, working with a mentor from your clinical area.
Applicants must have a first level registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
