From Our Editors

Pain affects people in different ways, so it can be particularly challenging for a caregiver to determine how much discomfort a patient is feeling and how best to minimize that person’s suffering. Bryn D. Davis offers nursing students and practicing nurses a framework for addressing both short-term and chronic pain with Caring for People in Pain. This essential resource covers the different types of pain, including psychosomatic and explores both traditional and alternative treatments.
