This module would be suitable for anyone who is involved with the clinical management of pain in any patient population.
This module aims to explore the clinical aspects of helping people to manage their pain. The module will explore pain in the widest sense including cultural, social and professional perspectives. It will enable students to critically evaluate and reflect upon their current practice and to consider ways in which they may develop evidence based interventions for people with pain and to develop their communication skills to help people in pain.
Participants in this module will develop a critical awareness of the current evidence relating to the understanding and clinical interventions for people in pain and to be able to apply this knowledge to their own practice. Participants will also examine pain in the broader context of the clinical/service environment and the influence of social, political and professional perspectives.
Applicants at level 7 would normally possess a bachelor degree or equivalent in a relevant subject.
Students will be asked to produce a 3000 word essay including a reflective account of an aspect of a student’s encounter with a person or persons in pain and a supporting academic discussion.
