To encourage innovation amongst interprofessional groups including clinical and health psychologists; medical practitioners; nurses; occupational therapists and physiotherapists, in the area of pain management by enhancing an understanding of the theory and research-based evidence that underpins practice.
The programme has been created in close cooperation with world-renowned clinical specialists, many of whom contribute to teaching. The curriculum incorporates all the key aspects of understanding and managing pain, integrating biology with the study of the psychological and social aspects of pain. We empower you to justify, critically appraise, systematically analyse and reflect on your own clinical practice and learning.
Taught modules include Neuroscience and Interdisciplinary Pain Management. Three further modules cover the clinical aspects of pain. There is also a research module.
