Assessement and management of pain is an integral aspect of patient care for nurses working in all health care settings. Pain management is a practical guide to current best practice, providing students and newly qualified nurses with the knowledge and skills required to care for a person experiencing or at risk of experiencing pain.

Pain Management explores pain assessment, evaluation and therapeutic management and challenges nurses to reflect upon their practice in order to update and improve their clinical practice. It adopts a chronological approach, exploring the essential clinical skills required to effectively manage pain in all ages from the neonate to the older person. Case studies, algorithms and evidence encourage implementation of best practice throughout the book.
