Welcome to the MSc module: The Nature of Pain and its Management
We all warmly welcome you to this new module
To effectively care for the person with pain, it is recognised that practitioners undertaking this module want to ‘make things better’ for their patients. For many students, pain specialist teams may not be accessible to fill gaps in knowledge and understanding. We anticipate that the content of this module will provide a platform to enhance your practice. The module has been built upon current initiatives to identify standards for pain management education: the International Association for the Study of Pain, the British Pain Society, the European Federation of International Chapters of IASP, and the Dept of Health – NHS Plan and Modernisation Agency. This has been coupled with a desire for interprofessional shared learning to reflect multi-disciplinary teams managing pain in practice.
The expected learning outcomes of this module include opportunities for interaction with other disciplines. The approach to learning values your expertise and provides opportunities to build a portfolio of learning based on your practice environment. Online facilitation of the case studies will be undertaken by academics with specialist interest and clinical practitioners who have considerable knowledge and experience in their field.http://hsc.uwe.ac.uk/pmm/index.asp
