Course content

This is an interprofessional, e-Learning course intended for healthcare professionals who want to specialise in the field of pain management. It is also aimed at educationalists, to provide the appropriate knowledge and expertise on pain, to teach others from various disciplines.

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.

This two-year course begins by introducing you to the multifaceted nature of caring for patients who have pain. The modules are designed to provide you with the ability to understand the biopsychosocial aspects of pain and to evaluate the various approaches to assessing and managing patients in pain. Professional issues, including quality and safety, leadership and law will also be covered.

The course is suitable for the needs of primary, secondary and tertiary care professionals.

Our assessments are structured to allow you to focus on your own areas of interest and to evaluate topics in relation to your practice and professional base.

Distinctive features:

  • The first postgraduate Diploma/MSc in Pain Management course to be developed
  • Emphasis on a biopsychosocial approach.
  • Interdisciplinary working
  • Suitable for primary, secondary and tertiary care
