The Oxford Handbook of Pain Management is the essential resource for all clinicians involved in the management of pain. Organised into sections dealing with basic principles of treatment, therapeutic interventions, including non-medical management of pain, and specific clinical situations, the Handbook emphasises the multimodal treatment options available for patients with pain conditions and brings them together to provide a truly biopsychosocial approach to management. Covering both chronic and acute pain, it will help the practitioner to choose the right treatment for the right patient at the right time.

Review quote

...leaves no topic uncovered...This is a brilliant effort considering the extent of the information and the brevity of the book...a must read for trainee physicians no matter their specialty... The Oxford Handbook of Pain Management is a remarkable book. In one pocket-sized volume you get the vast world of pain management - from labour analgesia ro opioid pharmacology, from advanced nerve block techniques to the principles of psychodynamics. The breadth of this book - the combined wisdom of 45 specialists - is breathtaking This is another addition to the well-known Oxford Handbook series. It aims to provide a concise 'in-your-pocket' guide to pain management a useful addition to an occupational health department's 'library'. I would also recommend it to trainees studying for their Membership of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine Part 2 as chronic pain is a common topic. Occupational Medicine, Feb 2013
