This book discusses a holistic approach to pain management, recognising the role of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions that address the biological, social and psychological aspects of care.

It covers the physiological underpinnings of pain, as well as the practical components of assessing and managing it for a range of disease trajectories, including cancer, non-malignant diseases, and throughout palliative care.

Pain management is placed in the organisational and societal context in which it is conducted, including organisational barriers to effective pain management and the underlying human rights associated with pain.

A nursing audience would benefit from this book’s balance between theoretical and physiological information, and the application of this knowledge to practice.

Overall, the author provides a detailed and informative narrative of the background of pain, the underlying physiological components, and the practical assessment and management across various disease trajectories.
