9780195300550: Pain and Chemical Dependency

Both pain and addiction are tremendous public health problems. Practitioners of every stripe say that they learned precious little about pain or addiction in their training and readily admit that instruction on the interface of pain and addiction is nonexistent. The recent problem of prescription drug abuse has only served to highlight the fact that these two worlds need unificationthose who treat pain must be informed about the risks of controlled substances and those who treat addiction need to better and more fully understand their benefits. Nowhere is the pooled knowledge of pain management and addiction medicine brought together to allow for a greater appreciation of the risks of addiction when treating people with pain and the pain problems of those with chemical dependency. This major new volume brings this vast knowledge base together, presenting an array of perspectives by the foremost thought leaders at the interface of pain and chemical dependency, and is the most comprehensive resource on the subject to date.

There have been an increasing number of seminars devoted to this topic and a new society, The International Society on Pain and Chemical Dependency, has recently been formed, and this volume is destined to become the classic text on this multidisciplinary subject. It will appeal to anesthesiologists, neurologists, rehab physicians, palliative care staff, pain center physicians, and psychologists.

Review:


"I think that the idea is great. In fact, I gave a talk myself on this topic at the recent AAN meeting. Given the scope of the project and the authors involved, I would buy this book sight unseen."--Ronald Kanner, MD, Professor of Neurology and Associate Dean, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York; Chairman, Department of Neurology, Long Island Jewish Hospital


"This looks like a winner to me. There is a substantial need for this topic in the fields of pain, and the authors are well known authorities on the subject. I would say go for it."--R. Norman Harden, MD, Director, Center for Pain Studies, Addison Chair, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago


"The proposed book could be very useful for many different medical specialty groups."--Edgar Ross, MD, Director, Center for Pain Management, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA


"The best attribute of the book is that it is easy to read. Every chapter is concise and to the point, and the book can be finished in one brief sitting. The writing is fluid and one does not need to re-read sentences. I am not aware of any other book that brings together such useful information about controlling pain and dealing with patients who chronically use opioids. This is a must read for pain fellows and for any physicians who deal with patients who use opioids."--Doody's
