Case Study Volunteer Register
Would you be interested in FREE treatments in Massage, Reflexology, Aromatherapy or other therapies?
Do you know of anyone who might be?
During our professional therapy courses students are required to carry out a number of treatments on external volunteer clients and write up their findings prior to their final examinations. Completing these case studies give student the therapists the opportunity to practice their skills as well as gaining valuable experience working with people they don’t know personally. Most courses require students to carry out a series of treatments with each volunteer to track outcomes and progress.
To help our students find case study clients MSCM hold a register of volunteers for them to approach.
How does it work?
Volunteers apply to be on the register by completing and submitting their details here on our website.
The information entered is name : town : postcode : contact number : contact email and preferred therapies. These details are then added to our register. The register is only made available to MSCM students and is not shared externally to any third parties.
Students search the register for volunteers in their area and make contact either by email or phone. The therapists will introduce themselves and explain what therapy they are offering. Volunteers can then decide if they want to work with the student therapist and receive a number of treatments. If they are happy to go ahead then arrangements are made for the first appointment.
The student therapists are required to complete a consultation on the first visit and write it up. This will include questions such as age, occupation, any underlying medical condition, details of any therapies currently undergoing, have had any surgery within the past 3 months, or are being treated for a recent injury. It will allow the therapist to assess if it is safe to proceed and to tailor their treatment to suit the needs of the volunteer. They will then carry out a treatment which they also write up. This is followed by a number of other sessions and each treatment and the associated outcomes are also written up. These are then presented to MSCM for marking and then to the examiner on the day of their final exam. Any personal details which can identify the volunteer are not included in the case study documentation, so it is completely anonymous.
Completing these case studies is invaluable to the student therapists to put into practice all they have learnt in class in a clinical setting and to fine-tune their skills.
