Attendance mode: Part-time
This theory and practical based module, which requires 100% attendance and can be residential, aims to provide suitably qualified health care professionals with the knowledge and necessary skills to perform sharp debridement as part of the management of a chronic wound.
The taught element follows the process defined in the TVNA procedures document. This module contains practical elements and is delivered jointly by university and clinical staff from the Wound Healing Unit. The module forms part of the Masters provision and can be combined with other modules to achieve this award.
At the Faculty of Health Studies, University of Bradford, you can choose to study for individual modules, a named award or build module credits through the SSPRD Framework for Flexible Learning to achieve an award relevant to your professional needs.
The Framework for Flexible Learning in Health and Social Care is a Faculty-wide academic structure for Specialist Skills and Post-Registration Development. It offers students increased flexibility and choice in the modules and courses that can be undertaken and it is also responsive to employer needs. The flexibility also allows you to move from one award to another if your career changes or you take time out from regular studying. Shared teaching and research expertise from across the Faculty is offered through interdisciplinary teaching across our core research modules.
The Faculty of Health Studies is regionally, nationally and internationally recognised for its teaching and research, and works with a number of healthcare partners to ensure clinical excellence.
This module is suitable for health care professionals wishing to develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of wound debridement.
Students should have achieved accredited or recognised modules in wound management and have access to a clinical environment.
The modules for this course can be found in the latest programme specification.
This module is provided as part of this interdisciplinary Framework within the Faculty of Health Studies. The Framework enables students to create an individualised programme of study that will meet either their needs and/or the employers’ needs for a changing diverse workforce within a modern organisation.
The modules and academic awards are presented in areas representing employment practice or work based or clinical disciplines.
Whilst some students can build their own academic awards by choosing their own menu of module options, other students will opt for a named academic award. The Framework also provides the option for students to move from their chosen named award to another award if their job or personal circumstances change and they need to alter the focus of their studies. The majority of named awards also offer students, the option of choosing at least one module, sometimes more, from across the Faculty module catalogue enabling them to shape their award more specifically to their needs.
