Course content

The MSc, PgDip or PgCert in Pain Management (Primary and Community Care) is an inter-professional, e-learning course intended for any health care professional with an interest in and/or a wish to specialise in the field of Pain Management, within the area of Primary and Community Care. In addition, 3 of our modules can be studied on a stand-alone basis to provide any healthcare professional with an introduction to Research, Statistics and Evidence Based Practice, a Foundation in Primary Care Pain Management and / or Quality and Safety. Details for these are provided within the Stand Alone module information area (MET257, MET500 and MET275).

The aim 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.
