Approximately 500,000 US cancer patients a year suffer from episodes of acute/chronic pain
Not just a pain relief book: covers the psychososocial aspects of pain and how to return and retain function for specific areas affected by pain and disease
This pioneering book is the first to provide in-depth coverage of all the interventional and medical strategies needed for effective cancer pain management. Logically organized, this immensely practical guide starts with general principles in cancer pain management, followed by management of specific cancer pain syndromes, unique issues, interventional techniques, and other specialized approaches. Reflecting an approach to pain management developed at the prestigious M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, Cancer Pain Management addresses the full spectrum of cancer pain syndromes and reviews the selection and administration of various treatment options.
