The first truly clinically focused book on the management of the full spectrum of pain syndromes "CURRENT Diagnosis & Treatment of Pain" represents the first clinical and truly management-oriented book on pain medicine. It covers with equal breadth and depth the management of the full array of both acute and chronic pain conditions. What is especially noteworthy about the approach here is its ability to convey management strategies that correlate the severity of pain with the level of therapeutic intervention required to assuage it. The full array of drug treatment and analgesic strategies are discussed in detail, and often conveyed through a detailed management algorithm in each chapter. The book's editorial board--including a pain medicine specialist, an internist, and a nurse practitioner--reflects how multi-disciplinary the treatment of pain has become in recent years.

"To provide a quick reference source for the primary care physician is an extremely worthy objective. By keeping everything simple and practical, the authors have successfully achieved their goal...This book is practical and succinct, providing clear information and a stepwise approach to dealing with various clinical situations. There are quite a few books available on pain, but none that specifically target primary care physicians that provide them with practical information to manage their patients. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service Doody's 20060929
