Pain is a challenging area to understand for any healthcare professional, and quality training on the subject is required if nurses are to provide effective pain management and person-centred care. Based on the curriculum developed by the International Association for the Study of Pain, this book offers an essential guide to managing pain. Beginning with an examination of the biology of pain, it then goes on to consider pain management across the life course, looking at key topics including acute pain, cancer pain and pharmacology. Case scenarios are included throughout the book to help readers apply the knowledge they have learned to their own practice. This book is aimed primarily at meeting the learning needs of undergraduate nurses, and is essential reading for all healthcare professionals studying pain. The text will be helpful as a basic foundation for more advanced postgraduate courses in pain management in nursing practice.

Offers clinicians a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to assess and manage pain, including input from the patient; aggressive use of both drug and non-drug therapies; assessment and frequent reassessment of the patient's pain; and a formal institutional approach to pain management. Includes strategies for overall and site-specific pain control. Addresses issues related to special groups. Contains analgesic dosage tables for adults and children, sample pain assessment tools, examples of non-drug interventions, and pre- and postoperative pain management flow charts.
Pain management is a popular topic for nursing students and one that is covered primarily during years 2 and 3 of UK pre-registration nursing courses. An understanding of the mechanics of pain, how pain affects individuals and how pain can be treated is absolutely core to nursing study and practice and nurses need to be able to identify, assess and treat pain responsibly and as part of their broader care for patients. The emphasis of the book will not be on facts, physiology or pharmacology, but instead the book will draw on these things to help students develop a solid philosophy of care that encompasses good pain management.
