Item description for A Guide to Pain Medicine by J. C. Yang...
Despite tremendous technological developments in medicine, the control of pain in patients has not been satisfactory. Various surveys have shown that the majority of patients in hospitals suffer moderate to severe pain, because health care providers view pain as a temporary symptom, because patients fear potential adverse side effects, and because of government restrictions on the prescription of drugs which are effective in pain relief but also addictive.
Recently, the importance of pain awareness and treatment has been increasingly recognized. Pain management, by decreasing suffering and increasing function, is a way of improving patients quality of life. A Guide to Pain Medicine is written to provide concise information on pain medicine for medical professionals, so they can educate their patients. Controversial issues are addressed and the most up-to-date developments in pain medicine are discussed.
