We have established a Tissue Viability Practice Development Unit (TVPDU), to ensure that those caring for individuals have the knowledge, skills and attitudes to provide high quality, evidence-based care. The TVPDU has and continues to develop education provision to meet the needs of patients, carers, employers, industry and staff.

  • Masterclasses for specialist practitioners and subject to validation, a taught doctorate in the field will be available from September 2013.
  • Staff from the unit are working together with industry partners to assist them in the evaluation of their products and with their education provision.
  • The TVPDU will undertake audit activity and research.


Courses are offered to meet a variety of needs from introductory level for the beginner through to the specialist practitioner. You can take individual modules or undertake a whole diploma or degree Our courses encourage students to apply theory to practice either in your own work area or on placements.

Examples of the courses:

The modules below can be taken as either stand-alone modules, or as part of a Dimensions in Health Care degree or as a Postgraduate diploma which could be used towards a full Master's degree.
