Skin health and wound healing in mental health settings

Our free service specific/specialist days promote the best practices in skin health and wound healing


Patients present with a wide range of mental health conditions and are cared for by a multitude of different services from generalist clinicians (GPs, community nurses, practice nurses, nursing home RNs) to registered mental health clinicians working in specialist mental health areas.

Many of these patients will be at risk of poor skin health, skin breakdown and compromised wound healing but education that addresses the bespoke learning needs of those working in mental health has sometimes been difficult to access.

We are therefore delighted to be offering this unique educational opportunity to clinicians working specifically in mental health settings as well as to those working with patients with mental health needs in more generalist areas of health and social care. The programme has been designed in partnership with mental health professionals.
