Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study Long Term and Chronic Conditions Management at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017).

The Master's degree in Long Term and Chronic Conditions Management aims to equip health and social care professionals and others, including new and recent graduates who contribute or plan to contribute to the strategically important area of long term and chronic conditions management.

Key Features of Long Term and Chronic Conditions Management

Performance:

- Since its inception in 2007, the programme has consistently produced successful, high achieving postgraduates

Teaching and Employability:

- Taught by experienced academics many of whom are also qualified teachers, research active and have a wealth of professional experience in chronic conditions

- Students have the opportunity to develop a bespoke programme relevant to their particular interest and/or speciality

- Students have a choice for their dissertation option, including the novel opportunity to draft a paper to be submitted for publication

- Students can take advantage of inter-professional learning in small groups and the opportunity to study with international students and those enrolled on other Masters programmes

The increasing burden of chronic illness is one of the greatest challenges facing health systems globally. In the UK, approximately 18 million people live with a long term or chronic condition and this number is expected to double by 2030. Approximately 80% of GP consultations, 60% of days spent in hospital and two thirds of all emergency hospital admissions are associated with chronic conditions (Department of Health 2004).

Managing long term and chronic conditions currently accounts for almost 70% of the NHS budget and these costs are projected to increase significantly given the ageing population and escalating risk factors such as obesity and inactivity.

Long term and chronic conditions can have profound and far reaching implications on all aspects of peoples’ lives and can present patients (and families) with a spectrum of needs.

People living with a long term or chronic condition require support, care and rehabilitation from a wide range of professionals in health, social and voluntary care sectors. In addition, effective health promotion, prevention, self-care and self-management will help ensure that chronic illnesses are avoided wherever possible and that people are more informed to safely and effectively manage their health and wellbeing.

This requires complex responses over extended periods of time, coordinated, proactive and collaborative input from the health, social care and voluntary sectors, patients, carers and lay personnel (as in the Expert Patient Programme). These need to be optimally embedded with systems which actively promote and support sustainable stakeholder collaboration and patient empowerment.

Modules

Modules on the Long Term and Chronic Conditions Management programme typically include:

• Theory and Practice of Long Term and Chronic Conditions Management

• Foundations in Health Promotion

• Foundations in Research

This two-year studentship at Bristol Veterinary School provides a link between feline clinical and research work, with an opportunity for involvement in multiple projects and completion of an MSc by research on a project entitled ‘The impact of feline degenerative joint disease on mobility and quality of life in cats’ using data from the Bristol Cats study. The MSc will be undertaken on a part-time basis over 2 years with the remainder of time being devoted to a range of feline-related work such as production of the e-newsletter Feline Update, delivery of CPD and advice to veterinarians, involvement in teaching, journal club, clinical rounds, diagnostic laboratory work and involvement in other research projects ongoing during the fellowship. The studentship provides an insight into an academic/research career and is particularly suitable for a veterinary graduate with some clinical experience who is interested in feline medicine and research. Other current areas of research interest are infectious diseases, feline immunology, genetic disorders, shelter medicine and epidemiology. 94666 189

The MSc by Research project:

Feline degenerative joint disease (DJD) is a common, but challenging condition in cats, with prevalence estimates ranging from 61% to as high as 99% of cats. Whilst DJD can lead to reduced mobility and pain, with significant potential impacts the cat’s quality of life (QoL), little is known about risk factors for this condition. Diagnosis of DJD primarily depends upon owners detecting behavioural changes in activity in their pet. Differences in activity between cats with DJD and normal cats have been detected using accelerometry. Early detection of DJD would allow a multimodal approach to delaying/halting progression of the disease, thereby improving the cat’s QoL. The aims of this project are to: 1) evaluate risk factors associated with the occurrence of feline DJD, 2) identify differences in the activity profiles of cats with signs of DJD, compared with disease free cats and determine whether accelerometry is more sensitive than owner report at detecting DJD and 3) investigate changes in the QoL with this condition. The project will use data from the Bristol Cats study, veterinary orthopaedic examinations, owner reported signs of altered activity, accelerometry and QoL questionnaires to realise these research aims.

How to apply:

Please make an online application for this project at http://www.bris.ac.uk/pg-howtoapply. Please select ‘Faculty of Health Sciences’ and then ‘Veterinary Science (MSc by Research)’ on the Programme Choice page and enter details of the studentship when prompted in the Funding and Research Details sections of the form.

Research highlights

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) 95% of our research was internationally recognised and 60% of the impact of our research was rated internationally excellent.

Prof. Margaret Harris has been awarded a grant of over £315K from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to find out whether technological advances to aid children and babies with hearing loss have had a positive effect on deaf children’s literacy.

Prof. Anna Barnett and her colleague Dr Luci Wiggs have been awarded a grant of £59K from The Waterloo Foundation to examine sleep disturbance in children with and without Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). This condition is characterised by significant movement difficulty and associated psycho-social and educational problems. Previous work suggests that sleep disturbance may be a relevant factor and this project will examine sleep in DCD with extensive and objective measures in relation to child and parent functioning.

Dr Kate Wilmut has been awarded a prestigious ESRC grant of over £160k to conduct research into forward planning of movement in children with and without Developmental Coordination Disorder. It is hoped that furthering our understanding of the mechanisms underlying this condition may lead to the development of effective intervention programmes.

With funding from the Leverhulme Trust, Prof. Vince Connelly is leading an interdisciplinary project conducting research into the writing problems of children with language difficulties. Embracing psychology, education and linguistics, this ground-breaking project is aimed at bridging the gaps in current knowledge and will help practitioners to develop literacy strategies to help this already disadvantaged group of children.

Dr Clare Rathbone has been awarded a grant from the ESRC to examine the relationship between memory and identity across the lifespan. Memory impairments can lead to more than mere forgetfulness; they can affect our sense of self and identity. This work will explore the changes in memory that take place in both normal ageing and in dementia.

Professor Margaret Harris and Dr Mark Burgess were awarded £640k by the Technology Strategy Board, a public research council that facilitates innovative technological collaboration between businesses and researchers. They are conducting multi-method research into the critical socio-psychological factors that underpin people’s transition from traditional combustion engine cars to ultra low carbon vehicles and are feeding their results back to car manufacturers, energy companies, and the government.

Research areas and clusters

Developmental Psychology Research Group
There are three main strands to research in this group:
1. Cognitive & Social Development - this includes work on the impact of socio-cultural contexts on human cognition and identity development, children’s evaluation of other people as sources of information, children’s understanding of emotion, the nature of mother-child interactions, children’s interactions with their peers and explanations for school bullying

2. Language & Literacy - this has a focus on the development of speech, reading, spelling, writing and handwriting

3. Developmental Disorders - this includes research on children with hearing impairment, Specific Language Impairment, Dyslexia, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Autism and sleep disorders.

Some of our research focuses on the description of typical development and explanation of developmental processes in different domains. Other work is concerned with understanding the mechanisms underlying atypical development and an examination of ways to support children and their families. Several staff in this research group work with professionals from other disciplines including health and education and are concerned with the production of practical assessment tools and the evaluation of intervention approaches to help children achieve their full potential.

- Adult Cognition Research Group
Research in this group covers the exploration of basic mechanisms as well as higher order processes in normal and atypical populations. A variety of methods are employed (behavioural and psychophysical measures, eye-tracking, movement analysis, and neuropsychological instruments). Specific research interests include: memory processes in ageing, autobiographical memory and identity processes, visual and attentional processing, reading and, perception and action

- Applied Social Psychology
The work of this group involves the application of a variety of different research methods and theoretical perspectives to investigate a range of contemporary issues and social problems. Members of the group share research interests in the psychological processes that underpin significant life transitions, the self and identify, mental and physical health experiences, attitudes, autism and sex differences.

As the only named Master’s programme within the UK devoted to Charles Dickens, this programme studies the author in a place that perhaps offers more Dickensian associations than anywhere else in the world. Read more
As the only named Master’s programme within the UK devoted to Charles Dickens, this programme studies the author in a place that perhaps offers more Dickensian associations than anywhere else in the world.

It combines a focus on both the local and the global author through compulsory modules contextualising the variety of ways in which Dickens engaged with the social, cultural and political issues of his age. Interdisciplinary approaches are employed, using Dickens as a focus, to consider the relationships between19th-century fiction and journalism, the Victorians’ engagement with material culture, and their fascination with the body and its metaphors.

To be an excellent strength and conditioning coach requires a wide knowledge across several domains and a number of different skill sets. Read more
To be an excellent strength and conditioning coach requires a wide knowledge across several domains and a number of different skill sets. These include:
-An extensive “toolbox” of training exercise and interventions
-An understanding of movement and the ability to teach movement
-An understanding of how the body adapts to training and how to organise training to maximise desirable adaptations
-An ability to coach
-The ability to understand various sources of evidence (including scientific evidence) and use it to inform your practice

The MSc in Strength and Conditioning has been designed with these demands in mind, and aims to support students in developing as excellent strength and conditioning coaches.

Why St Mary's?

St Mary’s is widely recognised as an international leader in strength and conditioning education. We were the first UK institution to offer a BSc in strength and conditioning, and this MSc was the first part time, distance learning course in strength and conditioning in the UK. In recent years the university has invested £250,000 in a state of the art Performance Education Centre which is unrivalled as a facility for strength and conditioning education.

The staff at St Mary’s include both highly experienced coaches and expert sport scientists. In addition, our adjunct faculty is comprised of some of the most highly regarded practitioners in the world. All of the course material is designed for the strength and conditioning degree alone, which ensures that the practical relevance of the scientific evidence to the strength and conditioning coach is always fully explored.

The distance learning nature of this course has several advantages for professionals. Principal among these is the opportunity to combine study with practical work experience, thus allowing the translation of science into practice. In addition, you can organise your study around your own personal schedule. You can download lectures and watch them at times that suit you.

A Student View

Crofton Alexander (Wasps Strength and Conditioning Coach)
"Having already started a career in professional strength and conditioning with London Wasps prior to commencing the MSc, I was hoping that St Mary's MSc Strength and Conditioning programme would be stimulating, thought provoking and a challenge to my current philosophy.

"In all honesty, it did more than that and I can definitely say that this programme has raised my strength and conditioning practices to the next level."

Course Content

All modules have a credit value of 20, except for the research project which has a credit value of 60. With the exception of the Advanced Sport and Exercise Physiology module, all modules are assessed by a variety of types of coursework. To qualify for the diploma you need to accrue 120 credits. To qualify for the certificate you need to accrue 60 credits.

Modules will be offered according to staff availability and student uptake. Details of the core modules offered are presented below. Whilst every effort is made to accommodate student preferences we do require at least three students to register for a module to make it viable.

Module Information
› Practical Techniques in Strength and Conditioning
› Research Methods and Evidence Based Practice
› Biomechanics and Skill Acquisition in Strength and Conditioning
› Physiology of Training
› Programme Design, Planning and Monitoring
› Topical Issues in Strength and Conditioning Science
› Independent Project
› Study Skills

Please note: All information is correct at the time of publication. However, course content is regularly updated and this may result in some changes, which will be communicated to students before their programme begins.

Career Prospects

In today’s marketplace, employers are seeking to employ staff who are suitably qualified to undertake their roles and responsibilities. As such, there is an increased need for postgraduate programmes to be vocationally orientated, with an emphasis on training students in the theoretical underpinnings and relevant practical areas to work in the sport industry.

The MSc / PG Diploma programme focuses on disciplines pertinent to the field of strength and conditioning. These disciplines are developed to provide a programme that reflects the competencies required for professional accreditation with the UKSCA and NSCA.

It is necessary for applicants to understand that the most important quality valued by employers is experience. It is therefore a condition of entry to the course that students arrange experience opportunities in strength and conditioning prior to entry. For those using the course as CPD for another career pathway (e.g. physiotherapists) this condition does not apply.
