How You Study

This course is delivered through blended learning, where key concepts will be introduced through lectures, seminars, e-learning, and directed study. To support this approach, learning support and resources will be provided through the University's Virtual Learning Environment. You will also be able to apply, analyse, explore, and extend concepts within tissue viability through clinical examples and shared-experience where possible.

Across the course, you will be expected to independently develop, synthesise and apply your clinical skills and knowledge to the context of your own professional practice in order to support and enable your professional development learning.

The syllabus for this module will typically include the following:

- Structure and composition of a range of tissue presentations
- Infection prevention and control
- Normal healing processes and factors affecting this
- Aetiological changes, dermatological conditions and their clinical
presentation in tissue viability
- Prevention of deterioration
- Assessment and management of complex wounds
- Psychological, social and cultural factors influencing individual
health
- Holistic patient assessment and exploration of comorbidities
- Quality of life and life choices affecting healing
- Collaborative and interprofessional team working and decision
making

How you are assessed

You will be assessed through a formative assessment which involves delivering a presentation on a Confidential Clinical Management Plan.

The summative assessment will then be a 4000-word justification of this plan.
