About the Authors
  • Originally published in 2005, Core Topics in Pain provides a comprehensive, easy-to-read introduction to this multi-faceted topic. It covers a wide range of issues from the underlying neurobiology, through pain assessment in animals and humans, diagnostic strategies, clinical presentations, pain syndromes, to the many treatment options, for example, 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 a 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.

    • Aimed at a broad readership, including anaesthetists, surgeons, physicians, researchers, ODPs, nursing and any healthcare personnel dealing with patients suffering from chronic or acute pain
    • International expert authorship and editorship
    • Practically orientated chapters designed for ease of reference
    • The most concise and comprehensive guide to pain available for healthcare professionals at all levels

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: '… this book will have something to offer to every health care professional who is involved in the care of patients with pain. … In summary, Core Topics in Pain achieves the goal of presenting complex concepts in a rather comprehensive scope and easy-to-read style, as described by the editors. It will have appeal to those who would shy away from the laborious reading of primary references texts and want expedited access to well-organised information.' Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
