'I would see this book being used as one of a few being used on my course, possibly even a core text. It is the most up to date and interesting text on the subject.' Julie Macdonald, Lecturer, University of Hull 'This book is appropriate for undergraduate students. The discussion is concise and flows logically.' Meriel Swann, Senior Lecturer and Programme Director MSc Pain Management, Birmingham City University Other potential contacts for endorsement: Meriel Swann, Lecturer at KCL -- Meriel Swann A good overview for those with less experience of the topic and but enough depth for those with more knowledge. I look forward to using the book on my course. -- Meriel Swann, Senior Lecturer, Birmingham City University An up to date and interesting read for student nurses and qualified practitioners. -- Julie MacDonald, Lecturer, University of Hull Acute or chronic pain, non-malignant pain, or cancer pain and palliative care, the details of the management by the clinical team are all covered in this judicious book. The physiology of stress and a discussion of coping strategies and psychological, non-pharmacological approaches and complimentary therapies are also considered. It is bang up to date with a rich and fascinating chapter on pain and human rights, at both national and international government level. Although the book is aimed primarily at meeting the learning needs of undergraduate nurses, it will also provide the basic foundation for more advanced postgraduate courses in pain management in nursing practice. I consider it to be essential reading for all healthcare professionals studying pain. -- Jim Young - Editor-in-Chief I am in the middle of reading [the] new book "Pain management in nursing practice" and have been very impressed with its contents and general readability. I particularly liked the "Biopsychosocial model of pain: rehumanizing care, which was very well written and included a large number of quality quotations from very reputable authors. I felt that chapter very much set the scene for the remainder of the book. I am very much looking forward to reading the remainder of the book and have already asked our library to obtain a copy for student use. I have recommended it to my colleagues who teach pain management to under-graduate students. -- Michael McGivern, Nursing Tutor Its strengths lie in the authors' ability to take complex and sometimes difficult to understand concepts and explain them in comprehensible English, a considerable skill and worthy of note. The case studies are carefully constructed and serve to reinforce the text well with some useful question and answers to follow and I particularly liked the bullet pointed chapter summaries, which for hard pressed clinicians give a good concise overview of the content. Appendices one and two offer a well structured and useful chart of all the most common pain relieving drugs carefully categorised user friendly. Many nurses will find this helpful. The website references are useful and there is some fascinating discussion in areas such as the history of pain and the nature of suffering, which add real gravitas to this book..As a reference text for study, this book is an invaluable aid for the students of today and rightly deserves its place on recommended reading lists and on the bookshelves of qualified nurses alike. -- Robert Becker, Independent Lecturer in Palliative Care
