- Descriptif détaillé : Neuropathic Pain
Neuropathic Pain is increasingly recognized as a chonic disabling condition. It is frequently thought of as harder to treat than other pain types, and this often results in a poorer quality of life for patients. Approximately 30% of adults in the UK alone have some type of chronic pain and some estimates suggest that one in five of these will have symptoms of neuropathic pain.
This volume in the "Oxford Pain Management Library" is a clinically focused and practical guide that aims to be an essential companion for all healthcare professionals who manage patients with neuropathic pain. It summarizes up-to-date research literature in a style that will have direct clinical applications for busy healthcare professionals. Alongside chapters on traditional areas relevant to neuropathic pain management, the book also covers the epidemiology of neuropathic pain, the role of
verbal description in pain assessment, and the experiences of patients living with neuropathic pain drawn from focus-group research.
