Core topics in pain
Core Topics in Pain provides a comprehensive, easy-to-read introduction to this multi-faceted topic, from the underlying neurobiology, through pain assessment (in animals and humans), diagnostic strategies, clinical presentations, pain syndromes, to the many treatment options (e.g. physical therapies, drug therapies, psychosocial care) and the evidence base for each of these. Written and edited by experts of international renown, the many concise but comprehensive chapters provide the reader with an up-to-date guide to all aspects of pain. It is an essential book for anaesthetic trainees and is also an invaluable first reference for surgical and nursing staff, ICU professionals, operating department practitioners, physiotherapists, psychologists, healthcare managers and researchers with a need for an overview of the key aspects of the topic.
