As a result you will acquire a suite of effective leadership strategies for capability building and develop your understanding of how organisations build organisational resilience when confronted with change.

Importantly, you will add to this the capacity to assess organisational capability and develop capacity in particular contexts. Using empirical research you will evaluate the decision making process that occurs within organisations and the aspects that influence it. You will design strategies to improve problem solving and decision making processes and outcomes and enhance organisational capabilities.

Expert teaching practice

The Renaissance and the eighteenth-century are two of the richest periods in English literature, as well as areas in which some of the most exciting new critical and textual scholarship has been concentrated. Read more
The Renaissance and the eighteenth-century are two of the richest periods in English literature, as well as areas in which some of the most exciting new critical and textual scholarship has been concentrated. The relations between these periods are made especially close by the conflicts as well as the continuities that can be traced between them.

All the major writers of the eighteenth-century were passionate readers of Shakespeare, Jonson Milton and Spenser, with some publishing major editions of their works. Yet Pope and Swift, Dryden and Johnson saw themselves not just as the inheritors of their literary forebears, but as their masters, correcting and improving the literature of the Tudor and Stuart eras before them, as the products of a golden but unrefined age. What is at stake in the mighty contests that arise from the great works and the cultural shifts of the Renaissance and the eighteenth-century is the development of ‘English Literature’ itself.

Conversation with other students and researchers through departmental talks, seminars, conferences, and associated research centres such as the Liverpool Medieval and Renaissance Research Centre and the Eighteenth-Century Worlds Centre will help you situate that reading within a thriving academic context.

The MSc Degree in Pain Management is an inter-professional, e-learning programme intended for health care professionals who want to specialise in the field of pain management. It is also aimed at educationalists to provide the appropriate knowledge and expertise on pain to teach others from various disciplines.

Pain is a multidimensional phenomenon and as such needs to be managed through multidisciplinary initiatives. These initiatives must be based on specialist knowledge, rigorous research and an advanced understanding of the physiological and behavioural concepts involved.

This two-year course begins by introducing you to the multifaceted nature of caring for patients who have pain. The modules are designed to provide you with the ability to understand the biopsychosocial aspects of pain and to evaluate the various approaches to assessing and managing patients in pain. Professional issues, including clinical governance and inter-professional practice, will be covered. The course is suitable for the needs of primary, secondary and tertiary care professionals.

E-learning assessment strategies enable students to focus on their areas of interest and are structured to allow students to evaluate the topic in relation to their practice and professional base.

Approximately 40 places are offered each year and the majority of students are self-funded, though some obtain awards from charities and trusts.  The course takes two years to complete inclusive of the dissertation component (nine months for the postgraduate certificate stage; nine months for the postgraduate diploma stage and a further six months for the dissertation stage).

There are no residential components in this course as it is purely e-learning - so there is no requirement to travel to Cardiff for course purposes. 

Distinctive features

• Inter-professional plus e-learning.

• The first postgraduate Diploma/MSc in Pain Management course to be developed.

• Emphasis on a biopsychosocial approach.

• Suitable for primary, secondary and tertiary care.

• A new primary care pathway is available within the MSc Pain Management to reflect the move of chronic pain services closer to people’s homes and this is facilitated and managed by an inter-professional, expert primary care faculty including leading GPs with a special interest in pain within the UK.

Structure

This part-time MSc consists of three stages – stage T1 (3 x 20 credit modules), stage T2 (3 x 20 credit modules) and stage R (60 credit research dissertation).

The total normal duration to complete the full MSc programme is two years (stages T1, T2 and R), from the date of initial registration on the MSc.

You may leave at the end of stage T1 with a postgraduate certificate, if you have obtained a minimum of 60 credits and have completed any required modules.

You may leave at the end of stage T2 with a postgraduate diploma, if you have obtained a minimum of 120 credits and have completed any required modules.

The dissertation is normally not more than 20,000 words. The subject of each student’s dissertation shall be approved by the Chair of the Board of Studies concerned or his/her nominee.

Core modules:

Fundamentals of Pain Management
Biopsychosocial Principles in Pain Management
Research, Statistics & Evidence Based Medicine
Patient Case Studies - Options
Clinical Management - Options
Professional Issues - Options
Dissertation: Pain Management

Assessment

The assessments have been chosen to ensure that the learning outcomes are appropriately tested and provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate they have met them. Specific module assessment methods for each module shall be determined by the relevant Board of Studies and are detailed within the relevant Module Description.

There are a variety of formative and summative assessment methods used, such as:

Assignments
Wiki development
Blogs
Multiple choice questions
Group work
Development of guidelines / PowerPoint presentations.

The MSc dissertation stage will be assessed based on the final dissertation. Expectations for the format, submission and marking of the dissertation will follow the current Senate Assessment Regulations, supplemented where appropriate with additional requirements of the Programme/School/College and any specific requirements arising from the nature of the project undertaken.

Career Prospects

Many students have reported that attainment or current participation on the MSc led directly to promotion.  Many students were also stimulated to pursue academic careers via further study up to PhD.

Our aim in the School of Healthcare Sciences is to provide health, social care and other related professionals with the opportunity to undertake a challenging and rewarding Masters in Advanced Practice. A programme that focuses on your personal development as a professional leading, managing and developing advanced practice roles and models of care delivery.

The MSc in Advanced Practice is designed for health, social care and related professionals in primary, secondary and tertiary settings who wish to advance their knowledge base, clinical, leadership and management skills. Students, irrespective of their clinical specialty, will become actively involved in the advancement of practice.

Distinctive features:

• The opportunity to explore and analyse the changing needs of professional and clinical practice and develop the skills to deliver specialist areas of care.

• The opportunity to undertake an innovative programme that offers a range of shared learning opportunities.

• The opportunity to undertake a programme in which there is an emphasis on independent learning in a research-led environment, enabling students to access the latest evidence base on professional practice.

• The opportunity to undertake an innovative and creative programme delivered by experienced educational and clinical staff who have developed a considerable local, national and international reputation.

• The opportunity to learn in a School which is an accredited Joanna Briggs Centre.

Structure

The MSc in Advanced Practice programme is modular and students must complete four modules (30 credits each) in the taught component of the course; one of these is a compulsory research module and the remaining three modules are of the student’s choice. Those who pursue the generic pathway would, on successful completion of a dissertation module, be awarded a MSc in Advanced Practice.

Students undertaking the full-time route will complete 4 modules and the dissertation module over 3 semesters enabling the student to normally complete and submit their dissertation within 18 months of initial registration on the programme. The dissertation module will be undertaken in semester 2.

The part-time route would commence in September of Year 1 and normally be completed within 4 years. During this time modules will be programmed so that 2 modules can normally be undertaken in Year 1. This enables the student to complete and submit their dissertations within 4 years of initial registration on to the programme.

Stand Alone Modules:

Students may also undertake specific modules within the MSc. in Advanced Practice programme as ‘stand-alone’ modules. These may be undertaken as and when available within the School by students who wish to gain expertise and knowledge in a given subject area, but who do not wish to register for the degree programme.

They would be undertaken outside of registration for a degree and students would be informed on application of the RPL regulations as previously mentioned should they later wish to register for the full MSc degree. Priority for places will always be given to those students registered for the Masters programme.

Most of our modules are available on a stand-alone basis. Some modules from both Allied Health Professions (AHP) and Nursing and Midwifery are shared across professions. Please contact the relevant module leader for more details.

Teaching

The notion of adult learning will inform the learning and teaching process and a range of learning and teaching methods will be utilised to achieve the learning outcomes of the programmes. Students will enter the programmes with a wide range of skills and experiences and some may hold senior positions. These experiences will be used to enhance the learning process.

Post graduate degree level study involves students taking responsibility for their own learning and this will be encouraged throughout the programme. The learning and teaching strategy will take notice of this and methods used will range from tutorials, to student led seminars, dialogue, problem based learning, appreciative inquiry, skills workshops, self-directed study, discussion and debate and expert led lectures.

Assessment

The assessments used within the MSc programme relate to the measurement of professional, academic and where appropriate clinical practice. This includes written work such as reflective narratives, evidence based literature reviews, essays and research critiques, examinations, case study analysis, practical tests, oral presentations, seminars, video and playback, tape recordings, viva, dissertations, project work and completion of portfolios.

Each assessment is accompanied by written guidelines and assessment criteria based on the QAA Code of Practice for assessments (QAA 2006). Wherever possible a proforma is produced to accompany a summative assessment. This may be in the form of marking criteria, competencies to be achieved, standards etc. with clear guidelines relating to what is being assessed. This correlates with the learning outcomes of the programme/module.

Career Prospects

The MSc in Advanced Practice is designed for health, social care and related professionals in primary, secondary and tertiary settings who wish to advance their knowledge base, clinical, leadership and management skills. Students, irrespective of their clinical specialty, will become actively involved in the advancement of practice.
