Abstract

This article attempts to summarise and interpret recent quality
initiatives from the Department of Health to improve tissue viability
nursing services across England. It is directed towards nurses
responsible for the planning and delivery of tissue viability services,
and to nursing management at trust level. Quality initiatives are
aimed at encouraging trust board members and service providers
to assess, and make public, the quality and standards of care that
they provide in the form of quality accounts. All healthcare service
providers will have to produce a quality account in 2010. This article
offers guidance on the use of quality indicators or nursing metrics to
measure quality, and prepare quality accounts in tissue viability.
