DESCRIZIONE

Handbook of Pain and Palliative Care:Biobehavioral Approaches for the Life Course Rhonda J. Moore, editor Chronic pain sends millions to doctors every year—yet for many, due to professional caution, incomplete assessment, or other reasons, their treatment is less than adequate in relieving their suffering. With the rise of integrative perspectives and the emphasis on overall quality of life rather than discrete symptoms, pain management is gaining importance across medical disciplines. The Handbook of Pain and Palliative Care meets the needs of this growing field by taking both a biobehavioral and a lifespan approach to understanding long-term and chronic pain and intervening to improve patients’ optimal functioning. Rich in clinical diversity, chapters explore emerging areas of interest (computer-based interventions, fibromyalgia, stress), ongoing concerns (cancer pain, low back pain), and special populations (pediatric, elders, veterans). This coverage provides readers with a knowledge base in assessment, treatment, and management that is up-to-date, practice-strengthening, and forward-looking. Subject areas featured in the Handbook Patient/practitioner communication. Assessment tools and strategies. Common pain conditions across the lifespan. Biobehavioral mechanisms of chronic pain. Pharmaceutical, neurological, and rehabilitative interventions. Psychosocial, complementary/alternative, narrative, and spiritual approaches. Ethical issues and future directions.The Handbook of Pain and Palliative Care stands out as a one-stop reference for a range of professionals, including health practitioners specializing in pain management or palliative care, clinical and health psychologists, public health professionals, and clinicians and administrators in long-term care and hospice.
