Synopsis

Handbook of Pain and Palliative Care Biobehavioral Approaches for the Life Course by Rhonda J. Moore

Handbook of Pain and Palliative Care:Biobehavioral Approaches for the Life Course Rhonda J. Moore, editor This book takes both a biobehavioral and a lifespan approach to understanding long-term and chronic pain, and intervening to optimize patients' 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, elderly, military). 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 include: ? ? 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 issue and future directions With the rise of integrative perspective and the emphasis on overall quality of life rather than discrete symptoms, pain management is gaining importance across medical disciplines. 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.
