Care & Management of Leg Ulcers Level 6 Module
TBC November 2020
Staying Healthy & Public Health
This is a 20 credit module and is run at Level 6 once a year. On completion of this module you will be an independent accountable practitioner who will recognise your own limitations and the need for specialist intervention. You will learn how to modify your own practice and act as educators within your team/service.
The module will facilitate this by provision of:
- Contemporary, evidence-based theory underpinning the care and management of leg ulcers
- A period of supervised practice in an audited clinical setting
- A structured assessment encompassing the above that will test underlying principles and knowledge and their application in practice
Is this course for me?
The module is widely recognised as required preparation for community practitioners who will be setting up and running leg ulcer services.

Face to face learning
Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.
