This level 6 or 7 level module can be studied individually or combined with an additional 30 credits of tissue viability modules to study for the Certificate of Continuing Education or the Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Healthcare Practice (Tissue Viability).
The module combines taught theory sessions with clinical competency assessment in practice. Students require a clinical mentor and should be able to practise in an area where clinical competency can be assessed. The module includes attendance to a 3 day national wound care conference.
This module is provided as part of this interdisciplinary Framework within the Faculty of Health Studies. The Framework enables students to create an individualised programme of study that will meet either their needs and/or the employers’ needs for a changing diverse workforce within a modern organisation.
The modules and academic awards are presented in areas representing employment practice or work based or clinical disciplines.
Whilst some students can build their own academic awards by choosing their own menu of module options, other students will opt for a named academic award. The Framework also provides the option for students to move from their chosen named award to another award if their job or personal circumstances change and they need to alter the focus of their studies. The majority of named awards also offer students, the option of choosing at least one module, sometimes more, from across the Faculty module catalogue enabling them to shape their award more specifically to their needs.
