All health professionals, regardless of specialty, will care for patients with pain that has persisted for more than 6 months. This fully updated fourth edition of Fast Facts: Chronic and Cancer Pain, written by two internationally renowned experts in the field, is designed to bring busy health professionals up to speed with the latest information in this area, including:
With health services around the world responding to calls to improve the management of painful long-term conditions, develop preventive and cost-effective solutions, and respond to patient choice and voice, this easy-to-read fact-packed book is essential reading for all GPs, nurses, junior hospital doctors, physical therapists, clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, medical specialists and medical students wanting – and needing – to know more.
"One in five of us will experience chronic pain, yet pain education for healthcare professionals is inadequate. Patients have been calling for this situation to change, then along comes this Fast Facts title by two leading experts, delivering in 192 pages the basic knowledge that you would want your doctor to have when you need their help. If every healthcare professional read this book, it would slash suffering and revolutionise patient care!”
