Nurses are playing an increasingly important part in the multidisciplinary team caring for those with chronic pain and this book will raise awareness among nurses of the contribution that they make to those in their care. It provides a resource that explains the mechanisms that cause chronic pain, the impact this pain has on the patient and their family, and the approaches that can be used effectively to help patients come to terms with ongoing pain.

The contributors are all leading nurse specialists in the field, and topics covered include the effects of nutrition on pain, massage, acupuncture, pain in older people and a discussion of the developing role of nurses in this important clinical area.
