This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It 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.

  • Provides extensive background material and covers broad issues which other books lack
  • The focus of the book is not only what is done with the management of pain but whether and why it is done
  • Includes the nuts and bolts of setting up and running a pain management programme
  • Addresses the application of pain management programmes in a wide range of fields
  • Has a multidisciplinary approach and therefore appeals to a multidisciplinary market
