Pain Management Courses Online
Diploma MSc is an award-winning provider of online medical education for Postgraduate Diploma and Masters courses. We are now pleased to add a Postgraduate Diploma and Masters course in Pain Management to our expanding range of courses. Our pain management courses are offered in conjunction with our partner, the University of South Wales, who have developed a strong reputation for delivering innovative learning.
There are a large number and range of conditions associated with pain, and pain management (both acute and chronic) is a major challenge for the National Health Service (NHS). In the United Kingdom (UK) back pain is the number one chronic pain condition and the greatest cause of sick days taken from work. Due to advancing technology and understanding of physical illness, life expectancy is increasing every year. With that there is also an increase in the number of debilitating pain-centred conditions, which place an enormous financial burden on the NHS and for those patients (and their health insurance companies) seeking privately funded care.
The PGDip/MSc Pain Management is the shortest and fastest route to the PGDip/MSc qualification. The course covers the wide range of the conditions pertinent to pain management and meets the educational needs of both primary and secondary healthcare professionals. This very practical Postgraduate Diploma and MSc will focus on direct application to current topics, case studies and processes relevant to the student’s own remit and country of practice. The pain management courses explore inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches to pain management and service provision.
Our courses are designed for a wide range of health professionals including; Doctors, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Practice Nurses and those with related undergraduate degrees (Clinical Nurse specialists, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Dentists, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Podiatrists, Rehabilitation specialists) or equivalent professional qualifications and background experience. Upon completing the course, you will receive university accredited Pain Management Certification to state your medical ability and expertise in this field.
