This colorful easy-to-read, yet evidence-packed, book provides a perfect overview to bring a reader up to speed with this vitally important area of pain management.

Chronic (persistent) pain is now recognized as a disease entity, with a broad range of physical, psychological and environmental maladaptions involving the peripheral and central nervous systems. All healthcare professionals, regardless of specialty, will care for patients with pain that has persisted for more than 6 months.

The authors of Fast Facts: Chronic Pain and Cancer Pain--renowned experts in pain medicine--say that this book is aimed primarily at "the wide range of busy healthcare professionals who are well aware that they have experienced little or no education and training to help them manage patients with chronic pain".
