Pain: A textbook for health professionals provides a comprehensive guide to pain and pain management with a focus on interprofessional practice.

Written by internationally acclaimed authors and fully updated to reflect latest evidence and understanding, this book bridges the gap between theoretical underpinning and practice for assessment and management of patients with persistent pain – all in clear and accessible language.

Now in its third edition, the text emphasises personal aspects of pain and the therapeutic alliance, as well as social and cultural aspects of pain, pain education for patients, and multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary working. It will provide both students and clinicians with a new lens through which to understand a person’s pain experience, as well as tools for effective management.
