Nurses at all stages of their careers have a pivotal role in dealing with patients in pain. This book is an essential guide to the management and understanding of pain and provides clear and accessible information on identification and classification of pain, responses, and systems for treatment and their impact upon the patient. The book focuses on the causes and effects of pain including injury, surgery, infection and disease, and considers situations that nurses and health-care professionals may encounter in the clinical setting. Treatments including pharmacological, surgical and complementary techniques are illustrated and emphasis is given to the patient's conception of pain and the factors influencing management and therapy.
