You will be challenged to re-evaluate your knowledge of pain mechanisms and how to manage them in non- pharmacological ways. You will then apply new knowledge to a case study from your own practice.

Your organisation will benefit by having staff with expertise in the management of pain, with a compassionate, patient-centred approach to assessment and interventions and the ability to share best practice with colleagues

What you learn

You will gain a broad understanding of the dimensions of pain, a critical awareness of non-pharmacological current pain management and an ability to apply pain management principles effectively in practice.

General areas covered

  • neurophysiology and nature of pain
  • pain theories and models of pain 
  • factors influencing the assessment and interpretation of pain
  • the potential strategies in the management of pain including therapeutic interventions, patient self-management, cognitive behavioural therapy, activity and exercise and behaviour change.

Skills gained for the workplace, technical skills or academic skills
