Summary

This is the first book of its kind to explore the many facets of pain from both a professional and personal perspective. An experienced group of pain specialists, each committed to understanding pain, explore the psychological, spiritual, linguistic, feminist and cultural dimensions of pain,as well as looking at the management of pain and the specific training that is available to promote better practice. Several contributors present moving accounts of their own experiences of pain, providing valuable insight for the reader.This text will stimulate the reader to consider and reflect on the many aspects of pain and will aid their understanding of the experience and the concept of pain itself. It will be essential reading for all postgraduate medical, physiotherapy and psychology students and any health careprofessionals who care for patients in pain. It will also be relevant for all final year nursing, community health and health studies undergraduates, and those students taking Pain Management and Palliative Care courses.
