​accredited & approved ​Tissue Viability Courses

Our online Tissue Viability Courses are aimed at clinical staff such as nurses and healthcare assistants working within a clinical setting. Tissue Viability refers to specific types of treatment for pressure sores , skin ulcers and other wounds that break the skin.

Pressure ulcers, also called “bed sores” and referred to medically as decubitus ulcers, are wounds that commonly develop at pressure points on the body when the weight of an immobilised individual rests continuously on a hard surface such as a mattress or wheel chair. Uninterrupted pressure is the cause of pressure sores and relieving pressure is the mainstay of wound care.

Other wounds that may benefit from specialised wound care techniques are diabetic foot ulcers, traumatic ulcers caused by injury, arterial and vein ulcers caused by lack of circulation, and burns.  Enhance your CPD portfolio with one of our easy to access online tissue viability courses today.
