Abstract

Practical Management of Complex Cancer Pain gives advice on advanced pain management techniques for cancer pains. Emphasis is placed on the suitability and selection of patients for different invasive and complex procedures based on the patient's history. Case histories provide compressive insight into the complexities of holistic management, with pain being only one of the factors that distress patients and families. This resource also covers cancer pain management for patients in a community setting, including the collaboration between pain and palliative medicine.
