Abstract

Student nurses at the University of Salford are being taught how to treat patients with life-like wounds designed by an award-winning make-up artist Davy Jones. Davy brought his extensive experience to Salford to help recreate acute and chronic wounds such as bed sores, incisions, lacerations and abrasions which are routinely treated by the NHS. The simulated wounds enable students to build upon their theoretical knowledge and to develop the practical skills and confidence needed to treat injured patients in clinics and hospitals. They complement a range of real-life, practical experiences created in the University’s state-of-the-art clinical simulation ward. Students work with computerised mannequins which simulate various illnesses and have a pulse, respiratory movements, arteries and recorded voices to communicate discomfort and describe symptoms.
