Omtale Managing Persistent Pain in Adolescents
This no-nonsense guide promotes a multidisciplinary approach to pain management in adolescent patients, acknowledging persistent pain is a complex biopsychosocial problem. With a strong focus on highly practical, applied strategies incorporating beliefs and values, mediation, relaxation, imagery, physical fitness and pacing, the book examines the many issues surrounding persistent pain. The thoughtful, compassionate approach considers lifestyle, family considerations and self-management in this unique population. Medical and psychological issues are highlighted throughout, with extensive use of case studies to illustrate important topics and potential obstacles. For Allied Health Professionals working with adolescent patients, this is the ideal practical guide.
