In the past, nursing students only had access to classroom theory to develop their wound care knowledge. In the project detailed here, simulated wounds were developed to teach nursing students at the University of Salford about tissue viability management, as part of a Vice Chancellor’s funded project. The aim was to design a collection of simulated wounds that accurately replicated the features of actual wounds, including realistic wound beds, periwound areas and exudate. While being overseen by clinicians, nursing students were tasked with developing essential skills and competencies using these models. This project was evaluated through regular feedback from the perspective of both lecturers and students.
