An excellent introduction for nurses to all aspects of pain and its management. Topics examined are relevant to all areas of health care practice and include:

*types of pain

*the experience of pain, including psycho-social factors

*interventions (pharmocological, physical and psychological)

*alternative and complementary therapies.

Caring for People in Pain clearly sets out the research base for practice and provides a thorough and accessible text for students of this core topic on all entry level and many post-registration nursing courses.


'The author has succeeded in squeezing a wealth of information and experience into a book that is understandable and will do much to encourage changes in practice. The book is a useful resourse for the novice and will be indispensable to the expert practioners.' - Peter Davis, Nursing Standard
