It examines how to assess patients with pain, the factors involved in the development of chronic pain and the setting up and running of a pain management programme. The authors have focused both on what is done in the management of pain and whether and why it is done, covering not only the content of interdisciplinary pain management but also the processes involved. An essential reference for all health professionals involved in all aspects of pain management.
