  • Drs Eduardo D. Bruera and Russell K. Portenoy have completely revised and updated the widely respected Cancer Pain: Assessment and Management for the second edition of this unanimously praised book. This is a comprehensive, clinically oriented review of all aspects of the complex and multidimensional problem of cancer pain. The unique characteristics of cancer pain, including pathophysiology, clinical assessment, diagnosis, and pharmacological and nonpharmacological management are all discussed here in detail.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The list of editors and contributing authors reads like a who's who in the field of cancer-pain management … This comprehensive yet practical book contains all the information needed to provide appropriate interventions to relieve pain in patients who have cancer, while also dispelling the myths and concerns that have contributed to the reluctance of physicians to provide such care. This book should be in the library of every physician who comes into contact with patients with pain. It is truly superb.' New England Journal of Medicine

    'The stated purpose of the editors is to provide a clinically oriented but scholarly and comprehensive review of the problem of cancer pain. They have clearly met this goal by developing what will be the definitive reference for cancer pain, regardless of discipline … This text would make a valuable and welcome addition to the library of anyone who treats people with cancer pain - and that includes anyone who treats people with cancer.' Oncology

    'There has been a need for such a comprehensive, clinically oriented text … This is an authoritative book on the assessment and management of cancer pain. It will be a valuable addition to any medical library, especially those providing comprehensive oncology services.' Palliative Medicine

    '… unique in its practical, yet scientifically-based approach …' Doody's Reviews
