Pain management is a popular topic for nursing students and one that is covered primarily during years 2 and 3 of UK pre-registration nursing courses. An understanding of the mechanics of pain, how pain affects individuals and how pain can be treated is absolutely core to nursing study and practice and nurses need to be able to identify, assess and treat pain responsibly and as part of their broader care for patients. The emphasis of the book will not be on facts, physiology or pharmacology, but instead the book will draw on these things to help students develop a solid philosophy of care that encompasses good pain management.
