Course programme

Deliver higher-quality patient care by developing your existing wound-management skills. Focus on wounds at cellular level, including factors which promote or prevent healing. Make informed decisions about care strategies and advanced wound-healing technologies. Add depth to your existing skillset, and enhance your career prospects in the process.

You’ll be a registered nurse, health visitor, midwife or other healthcare professional working in a hospital, community or commercial setting. Wound management will already form a significant part of your workload. You’ll be looking to deepen your clinical and technological understanding, enhance your patient-care skills, and advance your career prospects.

You’ll focus on the healing of wounds at cellular level, enabling you to assess wounds arising from different causes within your own clinical setting. You’ll learn to critically appraise and make informed decisions about the use of different care strategies (generally and for individual patients) as well as advanced wound-healing technologies.

Course content:

  • physiology of wound healing
  • underlying factors which prevent or impair healing
  • preparing the wound bed
  • care strategies and advanced technologies
  • research for healing and non-healing wounds
  • developing high-quality wound care for individuals.

Our course features a mixture of lectures, student-led seminars and problem-based learning over the course of eight study days. It's taught by an inter-professional team including a senior lecturer in wound management, a nurse consultant, and others from practice and our University. You’ll be assessed through a 4,000-word coursework essay plus an exam featuring 30 multiple-choice questions. There's compulsory half-day attendance for the exam.
