Long-term pain Summary

Long-term pain: A guide to practical management by John Lee (Consultant in Pain Medicine, Honorary Senior Lecturer and Lead Clinician at the Pain Management Centre, University College London Hospitals, the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London)

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 either wholly 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 behind common conditions and their remedies in order to emphasise the psychological and social impacts of pain.

Long-term pain Reviews

This is an extremely useful book for primary care physicians and general surgeons. Although very concise, the book successfully conveys the all-important principles of treating chronic pain patients, namely, using a comprehensive approach, and good communication among members of the medical team managing a patient. * Doody's Notes *
