Reviews
Review Quotes
"Nursing students writing assignments that mentions pain should ensure that this book is in their bibliographies or reference lists". (Emergency Nurse, 1 June 2011) "Tollison, Satterthwaite, and Tollison's Practical Pain Management serves as an excellent in depth reference, and the US Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Health Care Policy and Research Clinical Practice Guideline Number 9: Management of Cancer Pain serves as a more useful handbook." (International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics, 2011)
"The book brings a balanced approach to pain management. Pain has too long been treated with injections and medications. The book highlights what is known and unknown about pain management based on the evidence. It acts as a bridge between traditional pain management and the future of pain management."
