Care for Tissue Viability






12 months




after work


The Graduate Program in Wounds “Caring for tissue viability”, promoted by the Nursing School of São José de Cluny, expresses the will and duty of this institution to meet the needs of the society it serves. We assume the unavoidable and social responsibility of promoting knowledge and resources that enrich the look we direct towards the injured person and his family.

Wounds, a phenomenon associated with tissue damage, are a common problem in many institutions around the world, at all levels of care, affecting the day-to-day life and quality of life of patients and their caregivers. The impact of wounds, both on people's quality of life and on a social and economic level (high costs), make this reality a relevant public health problem.

Current health policies, in a context of globalization, make it pertinent to develop domains of competence, for a more effective response to the health needs of populations.

The scenario that affects not only the injured person but also his family and the community in general, alerts us to the responsibility of safe and fruitful care.

Aware that dealing with wounds is extremely complex, the urgent need for multidisciplinary intervention is highlighted, as well as the indispensable contribution of research to optimizing care for tissue viability.

The course aims to train health professionals for the best practice based on scientific evidence and, at the same time, boost research in the area under study.
