Perspectives on Pain: Mapping the Territory

Perspectives on Pain: Mapping the Territory

by Bernadette Carter (Editor)


This text explores the many facets of pain from both a professional and personal perspective. An experienced group of pain experts, each committed to understanding pain, explores the psychological, spiritual, linguistic, feminist and cultural dimensions of pain, as well as looking at the management of pain and the specific training that is available to promote better practice. Several contributors present moving accounts of their own experiences of pain, providing insight to the reader. This text should stimulate the reader to consider and reflect on the many aspects of pain and can aid their understanding of the experience and the concept of pain itself. It is aimed at postgraduate medical, physiotherapy and psychology students and any health care professionals who care for patients in pain. It should also be relevant for final year nursing, community health and health studies undergraduates, and those students undertaking pain management and palliative care courses.
