Pain: Creative Approaches to Effective Management
One of the most challenging situations for nurses is to see patients in pain but be unable to provide effective help. In this authoritative text, the authors examine the many issues surrounding pain, including how it can be assessed, how it affects the individual and how it can be managed, and guides the reader towards strategies for ensuring the patient's comfort.
In a simple, coherent and thought-provoking fashion, this fully revised edition addresses:
- the nurse's role in pain control in light of their ever-changing responsibilities, such as non-medical prescribing and patient education
- recent developments in care, including the use of pain assessment tools and new post-operative techniques
- pain management in community and hospital settings.
As well as providing information about current practice, Pain features case studies, reflective activities and multiple choice questions to engage and interest the reader. It makes stimulating reading for all healthcare practitioners.
