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. Read more

Overview

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 Health & Rehabilitation 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 Health and Rehabilitation, this course draws on modules from across the Faculty of Health 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, but students may take up to five years if they wish (modular route). The structure of the course therefore allows flexible learning in accordance with individual student interests and needs.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/painscienceandmanagement/

Course Aims

The aim of this flexible modular course is to broaden the student’s knowledge and understanding in Pain Science and Management, plus encourage personal development. The IASP core curriculum for professional education in pain is reflected in this programme. It is also about fostering greater insight into how different disciplines, through a programme of shared learning and teaching, can contribute to this aim. This course facilitates analysis, discussion and critical appraisal of scientific and clinical knowledge.

Course Content

The MSc programme comprises taught modules to the value of 120 M Level credits and a dissertation of 60 M Level credits, giving a total of 180 credits. Students may choose to finish their studies after completing 60 taught credits (Postgraduate Certificate) or 120 taught credits (Postgraduate Diploma), or they may study any module on a stand-alone basis and obtain the relevant credits.

The part-time MSc programme can be completed in two years, but students may take up to five years if they wish. The structure of the course therefore allows flexible learning in accordance with individual student interests.

Overview

This programme has been designed to be highly flexible in terms of student choice. There is only one core (compulsory) module of Research Methods in Health, which must be undertaken prior to the dissertation stage. Remaining modules can be chosen from the wide range offered by Schools both within and outside the Faculty of Health. This flexible choice of modules allows the student to design a programme of study that matches his or her perceived needs for personal and professional development. Such choice would be facilitated, managed, and approved by the Course Director, to ensure overall coherence of the modules chosen within the programme. The programme is distinctive in that it is designed to be of interest to a wide range of health professionals and to those from other disciplines with an interest in health or health care delivery. Health professionals require both academic accreditation and flexibility when pursuing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and our postgraduate courses endeavour to fulfil these needs. This flexible course is available on a part-time or a modular route – up to 5 years. Additionally, modules can be taken as independent standalone units of study.

There are four Schools in the Faculty of Health: the School of Health and Rehabilitation, the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing and Midwifery and the School of Pharmacy. Each of these offers a range of modules at postgraduate (M) level, each of which can potentially form part of a programme of study on this course. In addition, there are a number of modules offered within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Natural Science with a strong relevance to health.

The part-time MSc programme can be completed in two years, but students 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.

The core modules meet the needs of individuals to review and evaluate the scientific background of their own specialism and to integrate this into their clinical practice. The option modules allow students to devise a programme to suit their own specific requirements in terms of professional and personal development. The Research module and Evidence-based Practice module together with the dissertation develop the student’s research capabilities and critical evaluation skills.

The programme is assessed by a variety of techniques chosen to reflect the aims and objectives and teaching methods of individual modules, for example: essay, critical evaluation, paper review, seminar presentations, examination, the use of the Virtual Learning Environment, and dissertation. The pass mark for all modules is 50%.

Additional Costs

Apart from additional costs for text books, inter-library loans and potential overdue library fines we do not anticipate any additional costs for this post graduate programme.

Overview

Physiotherapy is a constantly evolving profession which requires practitioners to demonstrate current best practice and continued professional development at postgraduate level. The philosophy of this flexible modular course is to broaden and extend knowledge and skills in the field of cardio-respiratory physiotherapy and encourage personal and professional development. This programme is designed to provide opportunity for students to question and challenge current practice in aspects of cardio-respiratory physiotherapy and to enable students to explore in depth, areas of professional interest within physiotherapy. It also aims to enable students to evaluate evidence both for current practice and for new approaches in physiotherapy practice.

The structure of the core modules meets the needs of individuals to review and evaluate the cardio-respiratory field of physiotherapy and to integrate this into their clinical practice where appropriate. The optional modules allow students to devise a programme to suit their own specific requirements in terms of professional and personal development. The Research Methods in Health module and postgraduate dissertation, together with core/optional modules such as Evidence-based Practice and Assessment and Measurement, develop the student’s research capabilities and critical evaluation skills.

The School of Health & Rehabilitation 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.

The part-time MSc programme can be completed in two years, but students may take up to five years if they wish (modular route). The structure of the course therefore allows flexible learning in accordance with individual student interests and needs.
