9780931092251: Epidemiology of Pain: A Report of the Task Force on Epidemiology

This volume represents a systematic, interdisciplinary approach to the issue. Its contributors have examined the literature critically and thoroughly, applying the highest criteria for distinguishing major, high-quality studies from other studies.

Epidemiology of Pain provides a repository of vital epidemiological information on chronic pain syndromes, reviews the problems and pitfalls of epidemiological pain studies, and identifies high-priority areas for future research.

Review:

his book is an excellent text that reviews the problem of pain in society and for the individual, highlighting known pre-disposing risk factors, and the paucity of knowledge as to the real impact or lack of impact of medical and surgical treatment. All physicians, indeed health care workers, who deal with chronic painful conditions should read at least the general chapters, if not the entire book. It is well presented and thought provoking. --British Journal of Anaesthesia

This book is relevant not only to those involved directly with pain, but also hospital administrators and those involved with allocations of research funds. --Anaesthesia and Intensive Care

Epidemiology is one of the critical sciences basic to an understanding of disease and illness. Studies of the epidemiology of pain are a relatively new phenomenon with many studies flawed to the point that meaningful extrapolations to the population at large are unable to be made. The contributors to this volume have succeeded in examining the currently available literature in a critical and thorough manner by applying the highest criteria for distinguishing major, high-quality studies from others. This valuable book is the first to have systematically compiled a wealth of statistical information regarding the epidemiology of pain. It is up to students to grasp this and apply it appropriately in clinical practice. --South African Medical Journal
