Chronic Pain: A Primary Care Guide to Practical Management
Leading pain specialist Dawn A. Marcus, MD, offers primary care clinicians practical, clear, and succinct evidence-based approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of the painful conditions they see in their offices every day. The author simplifies the often complex care of patients with chronic pain by providing practical strategies for targeting important symptoms, establishing realistic treatment goals, and managing patients with instructional sheets that can be copied directly from the book and used for both education and the monitoring of therapeutic compliance and response. Numerous case-oriented practical applications illustrate the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with chronic pain in the context of a busy office practice. Important sections on opioid therapy and special patient groups are also included. Supplementary features include a value-added compact disk containing an ebook version of the book or use in the reader's computer or PDA, and continuing medical education (CME) questions that provide the opportunity to acquire 5 AMA/PRA category 1 credits.
