"This is the book for all healthcare professionals to read in detail or refer to on the subject of pain. It not only describes the physiology and causes of pain but also addresses the mysteries of pain, such as phantom and referred pain." Nicola Eaton, Nursing Standard, 1999 "Slim but fulsome: a primer on pain...a well-researched and compiled book" Nursing Times "An excellent text book for any practitioner new to the role of pain management who wishes to expand their knowledge." Nurse Education Today "...this text should prove a valuable addition to the library shelves and, ideally, individual purchase for both the general nurse as well as those seeking to pursue pain relief as a specialized area of care."
