Cancer related pain can be successfully managed in the majority of patients by the use of medication. Some patients, however, have pain that does not respond to opioids, and require more specialised pain management techniques. Examples of such treatments are nerve blocks, radiotherapy, acupuncture and physiotherapy. This is the first book to provide detailed information on these and other methods of pain management. The Editors are experienced clinicians who have brought together an international, multi-professional team of pain specialists, palliative medicine practitioners and oncologists to provide a practical, comprehensive guide to the overall management of cancer pain. By effectively covering many different aspects of care, this book will appeal to all health care professionals involved with the frontline of cancer related pain.
