In this volume, leading clinicians and scientists explore the interrelationships between pain measurement practices in clinics and laboratories and examine crucial issues in pain measurement in each of these areas. Statements of key concepts of pain measurement in animal laboratory research, human laboratory research, and clinical research are followed by commentaries from investigators in other areas, who relate the concepts to their own fields of pain research. Contributors from clinical and scientific disciplines also exchange views on issues such as assessment of analgesic efficacy in animals, pain research in veterinary settings, multidimensional scaling in human pain measurement, use of psychophysical laboratory methods in clinical settings, assessment of chronic pain, and measurement of pain by interview surveys. Concluding chapters discuss the practical use of pain measurement in patient care and explore future trends in pain measurement.
