Pain is the distressing experience that tells people that they are not well. Pain is also the price that is paid for treatment. Health Care professionals are taught that "pain is what the patient says it is", as it is felt, fought, resisted and managed uniquely. It is not easy to imagine or remember pain. The first edition of this book has become the classic work on the subject. This second edition also includes an examination of the physical, spiritual and cultural factors that influence the perception of pain. There is a new section on pain assessment and management.
