Description:

This book provides, in a single cohesive source, all the information a health care professional needs to diagnose and select appropriate treatments for the patient with pain associated with cancer. Cancer Pain: Assessment, Diagnosis, and Management is clinically oriented and comprehensively addresses all the issues surrounding modern cancer pain management. The authors provide detailed information on common but difficult to treat cancer pain scenarios. Coverage includes state-of-the-art information on treatment options and discussions of the impact of radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery on pain management.

This authoritative, comprehensive clinical reference is essential for all clinicians who treat patients with cancer, including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, pain specialists, anesthesiologists, primary care physicians, internists, and nurses.
