Course summary

This programme is available to those who have completed our PgDip in Pain Management (Primary and Community Care).

Pain is a multidimensional phenomenon and as such needs to be managed through multidisciplinary initiatives. These initiatives must be based on specialist knowledge, rigorous research and an advanced understanding of the physiological and behavioural concepts involved.

The aim of this programme is to help students to develop their knowledge to an advanced level in their area of expertise and or interest within the field of Pain Assessment and Management in the Primary and Community Care setting. This is however, undertaken within a broader context, which allows the student to understand their level of expertise and knowledge base and how it fits into inter-professional practice and pain management as a whole.

Every applicant has to apply for the Postgraduate Certificate (Pg Cert) year first. Once they have completed and passed the Postgraduate Certificate, they can either choose to exit with the Postgraduate Certificate award or they can apply to undertake the Postgraduate Diploma (Pg Dip). Once they have completed and passed the Postgraduate Diploma, they can either choose to exit with the Postgraduate Diploma award or they can apply to undertake the MSc.

Each course runs over nine months. The Postgraduate Certificate course starts with a two-week introductory period to enable you to familiarise yourself with the course and e-learning. The course team offer support Monday – Friday (9am -5pm) by email, telephone, video calls and online discussion boards/forums.
