Designed for primary care clinicians, this book is about patients who suffer with long term pain. Written in a distinct, friendly style, it analyses ideas about pain from the simple to the complex and provides up-to-date and relevant information written by doctors whose practice is eitherwholly or substantially related to people with pain. It provides examples of everyday patients to provide clinicians with the confidence to prescribe and treat patients with more difficult pain. In an attempt to 'demystify' some areas of pain medicine it also includes details of the science behindcommon conditions and their remedies in order to emphasise the psychological and social impacts of pain.
John Lee is an honorary Senior Lecturer and Lead Clinician of the Pain Management Centre, at University College London Hospitals and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square. He has also worked extensively with the Commission for Healthcare Improvement (CHI) and the Healthcare Commission. Andrew Baranowski...
