Review
"This book thoroughly covers the pathophysiology of pain and managing pain with pharmacological and nonpharmacological means. It is written for nurses, nurse specialists, advanced nurse practitioners, and academics. Pain occurs at all ages but rarely are there books dedicated to pain in the elderly. ... This book is unique in that it is an international collaboration, which enriches this exploration of pain management in older adults." (Carol Ann Siem, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2018)
