Description

Chronic pain is a substantial clinical problem encountered not only within a specific chronic pain context but in all areas of health care. The needs of patients with chronic pain can be quite different to those of other patients and this can influence the impact of treatment required for unrelated conditions. "Chronic Pain" places the emphasis firmly on practice and the ways in which the nurse can improve the care of the patient with chronic pain. Chapters are written by subject specialists in each area and also serve as an excellent introduction to this interesting but complex area.
