Pain Management. Edition: 2

Not rated yet

Pain management is a growing area of interest for many health care professionals. It is a truly integrated approach involving a team comprising medical practitioners, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and nurse practitioners. Different professions may work together but the approach may also be adopted by individual practitioners.
Pain Management: An Interdisciplinary Approach deals specifically with the management of potentially chronic l pain, how to assess patients with pain, the factors involved in the development of chronic pain and the setting up and running of a pain management programme. The main focus is on musculoskeletal and fibromyalgic type pain. Cancer pain is not addressed. The authors address not only what is recommended in the management of pain but also whether and why it is done, thereby covering not only the content of interdisciplinary pain management but also the processes involved.
An increasing number of courses on pain management are now being set up around the world. This has created an increasing and continuous demand for a textbook which could be used by those attending these courses and which would provide others who have to deal with the problems as part of their day to day practice with guide to best practice. The book provides an essential reference for all health professionals involved in all aspects of pain management.
