The impact of postgraduate studies in wound healing on professional practice and personal development

15/09/17 | Education, Research | Samantha Holloway

There is some evidence to show that higher education can make a difference in nursing and midwifery programmes, however, there is a lack of evidence to demonstrate the effectiveness of postgraduate programmes with an inter-professional focus with regards to their impact on clinical practice. Between March and April 2017, a descriptive cross-sectional survey of graduates from a number of Master’s programme within the School of Medicine at Cardiff University was undertaken in order to determine the impact of postgraduate study on an individual’s professional practice and personal development. This article presents the results of the survey for the Masters in Wound Healing and Tissue Repair.
