The students must confirm that they have made contact and agreement with a Tissue Viability Nurse (or equivalent) and that agreement has been obtained by a manager (if applicable) should the practitioner need to be released from their workplace to undertake supervised practice hours. Once successfully enrolled on the Tissue Viability Module students are expected to meet and complete the practice assessor document and email back to the Module Lead. The date to submit the form will be provided at a later time.
