This module is aimed at registered nurses and other relevant health care professionals working as practitioners in leg ulcer management in order to consolidate and develop current practice. It can be taken as part of the Post Qualifying Framework or as a “stand alone” module.
The module aims to support the development of a reflective practitioner who is able to implement evidenced based practice in relation to the care and management of patients with leg ulcers. A range of teaching/learning strategies are utilised in order to provide the best possible learning environment. These include key lectures from Consultant Nurses, Doppler demonstrations and practice, student seminar presentations, small group work, workbooks, literature critiques and reflections on practice. Time is identified within the timetable to allow students access to tutorial support. Integration of theory and practice is enhanced by the provision of planned clinical placements followed by reflection on practice.
The module assessment involves critique of current practice in relation to national guidelines and a practice assessment to include Doppler ultrasound. Participants wishing to undertake this module will need to have access to clinical areas where the assessment of patients with leg ulceration can be undertaken.
