Course content

Please note, all course information including entry requirements relates to the 2022/23 academic year.

This course provides students with a sound understanding of the physiology and pharmacology of pain, the psychosocial aspects of pain, and the assessment of pain. It also provides a thorough understanding of research methodology.

The School of Allied Health Professions is based on Keele campus and has a well-established undergraduate physiotherapy programme. It has strong connections both with local clinical units and with other Schools within the University such as the Schools of Nursing & Midwifery, Medicine, and Pharmacy.

Allied health professionals and members of other related disciplines may require both academic accreditation and flexibility when seeking continuing professional development (CPD) and our postgraduate courses endeavour to fulfil these needs within the field of pain management. Although based in the School of Allied Health Professions, this course draws on modules from across the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the wider University encouraging interprofessional education. It is available part-time, or modules can be taken as independent stand-alone programmes of study.

The part-time MSc programme can be completed in two years although up to three years is permitted. Students who opt for the modular route may take up to five years if they wish. The structure of the course therefore allows flexible learning in accordance with individual student interests and needs.
