About this book

Pain is an increasingly common symptom in children and adolescents, and nearly 5% of the paediatric population now suffer from severe chronic pain conditions. This manual describes the inpatient treatment programme of one of the world’s largest treatment facility for chronic pain in children – The German Paediatric Pain Centre – and the guidance provided is also applicable to outpatient pain management. Epidemiology, aetiology, diagnostics and treatment principles are all examined in detail. Criteria for inpatient treatment are explained, and the structure and organisation of a treatment centre for chronic pain are described. Therapeutic interventions are presented with the aid of many examples of pain management and health care from clinical practice. Special features of pain therapy for children and adolescents suffering from comorbid mental disorders, family difficulties or physical complaints are also discussed.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Book is a thorough guide with empirical evidence, case examples, and practical clinical tools that help demonstrate the implementation of the strategies presented. … book will prove helpful across disciplines and levels of professional expertise: from the newcomers who are seeking education and tailored interventions for youth with chronic pain across a range of treatment settings to the seasoned pain specialist interested in starting an intensive multidisciplinary treatment program. … a valuable contribution to the field of pediatric chronic pain.” (Edin Randall and Monique Ribeiro, Pediatric Pain Letter, Vol. 16 (1-2), June, 2014)

“The purpose is to provide therapists and physicians some guidelines to manage chronic pain conditions in children. … The intended audience encompasses everyone who sees children with chronic pain conditions. This includes therapists, primary care physicians, and pain physicians both in training and experienced. … The authors have done a great service in writing this book and making it easy to understand. It is a must read for all who practice chronic pain management regardless of the age of their patients.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2013)
