About this title

The Oxford Textbook of Paediatric Pain brings together an international team of experts to provide an authoritative and comprehensive textbook on all aspects of pain in infants, children and youth.
Divided into nine sections, the textbook analyses pain as a multifactorial problem to give the reader a comprehensive understanding of this challenging subject. Evidence-based chapters look in depth at topics ranging from the long-term effects of pain in children, to complementary therapy in paediatric pain. Case examples and online materials including scales, worksheets and videos are provided to aid learning and illustrate the application of knowledge.
Written by clinicians, educators, trainees and researchers, who were hand-selected by the editors for their practical approach and expertise in specific subject areas, The Oxford Textbook of Paediatric Pain will become the standard reference text in the assessment and treatment of patients and families in the field of paediatric pain.
"Paediatric Pain services are underdeveloped in the UK. Trainees in pain management are only now routinely exposed to the unique challenge of managing pain in children. This book should be essential for all thinking of practising in the field – it informs us what we know, and, most crucially, why it matters. I endorse it wholeheartedly." – British Journal of Hospital Medicine
Editors: Patrick J McGrath, Bonnie J Stevens, Suellen M Walker, and William T Zempsky
