In 2007, the Tissue Viability Society defined tissue viability as: 'A growing speciality that primarily considers all aspects of skin and soft tissue wounds including acute surgical wounds, pressure ulcers and all forms of leg ulceration. However, it is not just wound management, it also covers a wide range of organizational, political and socioeconomic issues as well as professional relationships and education.' I would suggest that we have moved forward since this definition, as tissue viability nurses' responsibilities have broadened to embrace a changing NHS. There is now a much greater focus on avoidable/non-avoidable pressure ulcers, how we measure and report them, and how we complete root cause analyses to identify their genesis.
