Abstract: In 1999, a sub-group of the National Association for Tissue Viability Nurse Specialists (Scotland) agreed to lead the production of a competency framework. The aims were to define tissue viability specialist nursing, to provide a framework for tissue viability nurse specialists (TVNSs) that would form a basis for clinical supervision and mentorship, and to inform curricula for tissue viability education. Using a combination of models, a framework evolved which defines the multifaceted nature of the role. The framework lists competencies, which are further broken down into specific role elements, matched with measurable performance criteria for the TVNS. The competency statements that are provided within the publication describe the attitude, knowledge and skills required to fulfil the TVNS role. The document, ‘A Route to Enhanced Competence for Tissue Viability Nurse Specialists’, was published in June 2002. This initiative meets the national need for definition of specialist practice and provides a standard by which the public can be assured of quality care from TVNSs in Scotland.
