About this title:
What Do I Do Now?
Patients with pain disorders pose many clinical challenges for the attending physician. Even experienced clinicians occasionally arrive at the point where diagnostic, work-up, treatment, or prognostic thinking becomes blocked.
This book teaches the reader to recognize and appropriately treat a variety of pain disorders using a case-study format. Divided into three sections - chronic pain conditions, chronic pain and related disorders, and treatment overview - and derived from consultation requests from providers in medical practice, the cases are written in a format that encourages the reader to formulate a differential diagnosis and treatment plan for a variety of pain problems. Succinct in its presentation and logical in its layout, Pain is the perfect resource for the busy practitioner on the go.
- Each case is presented as if the reader were learning about the case for the first time in the hallway or office
- Key clinical take-home points are listed at the end of each chapter for easy reference
- Tables and figures are used whenever possible, and all chapters include references for further reading
"It is easy to read and the examples are good for the patient as they stimulate the interest to study further the pain status, diagnosis and treatment." - Finnish Medical Journal
Readership: The busy general practitioner who does not have time to study the pain textbooks.
Authors: Tabitha A Washington, Khalilah M Brown, and Gilbert J Fanciullo
