Abstract: 

The treatment and prevention of pain has become a wide interdisciplinary speciality. Although modern work has been published in specialist journals, the relevant materials has now been assembled in one volume. The editor has brought together eighteen well-known international contributors, whose experience of working in fields of clinical psychology, medicine and nursing, fulfills the objectives of the International Association for the Study of Pain. The book provides a comprehensive account of up-to-date practice in: -the management of both acute and chronic pain;-the prevention and relief of pain associated with medical procedures;-the rehabilitation of pain patients. Clinical practitioners,researchers, lecturers in all disciplines at every level and their students, will find invaluable research- and practice- based guidance to help them with their challenging work on pain control, particularly in cases where treatment involves further pain in addition to that caused by the patient's condition.
