Written by clinicians, educators, trainees and researchers, who were hand selected by the Editors for their practical approach and expertise in specific subject areas, The Oxford Textbook of Paediatric Pain will become the standard reference text in the assessment and treatment of patients and families in the field of paediatric pain.
