About

The challenge for health care professionals to provide a quality, cost effective service is perhaps greater than ever and these have been highlighted recently in a variety of documents. Podiatrists spend a considerable amount of time managing chronic wounds on the foot. In order to manage these patients effectively the clinician should have a detailed knowledge and understanding of the complexities of wound healing and tissue repair. This module will provide clinicians with an advanced knowledge for the management of people with wounds that may effect the lower limb. The module is designed for clinicians with experience in the care and management of the patient with various wounds which affect the foot and lower limb. This training will produce clinicians who are suitably equipped to integrate theory into practice and provide the scope required for those wishing to hold specialist posts.
