It comprises nine concise and simple chapters that aim to impart the maximum information within a limited space.

Pain Management: Essential Topics for Examinations will be an ideal resource for those who plan to sit for examinations, wherever they are based in the world. In addition, it will be an invaluable reference for higher and advanced pain trainees, residents, and physicians working in chronic pain.

Reviews

“The text certainly delivers on its promise of concise information covering a wide range of topics. … This is an excellent resource for those unversed in the discipline of pain management, particularly medical students or junior residents. … it does serve as a superb introduction with relevant information for those new to the topic.” (Mehdi Sefidgar, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 62, July, 2015)

“This is a quick review of pain topics frequently found on examinations. Each topic is covered in one to two pages and the entire book can be reviewed in one sitting right before an examination. … The primary audience is readers sitting for a pain examination but the book will also be of use to physicians at all levels of training and to physicians who see patients with chronic pain conditions. The author is an experienced clinician and examiner.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)
