It is essential that practitioners have a sound knowledge of the aetiology and epidemiology of leg ulceration. Leg ulcer educational modules are provided by several universities across the UK. This paper aims to examine the theoretical and practical aspects of four such courses at Glasgow Caledonian University, Hertfordshire University, Cardiff University and Queens University Belfast. It analyses the mode of delivery, module content and how it compares with national guidelines, theoretical and practical aspects of the module and its alignment to the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework.
