Continuing Professional Development

There are a number of courses developed to meet the needs of healthcare professionals working in pain management. They range from 2-3 day courses providing basic skills on specific areas of pain management to more comprehensive programmes offering education regarding theoretical components of pain, such as anatomy and physiology and assessment and management of pain. Some of these courses are available as a multidisciplinary MSc, whilst others are designed to meet the specific needs of one profession.
