"PAIN: Clinical Manual" 2nd edition, is a book that should be thoroughly read (and used) by health care providers who deal with pain patients. This book addresses many myths and misconceptions surrounding pain, and explains the mechanisms of pain. It supplies pain management techniques, both medicinal and non-medicinal. The text and charts are comprehensive and clear. I appreciate the permissions for use of the charts, and will be using them for pain assessment in clincial studies. Education in pain assessment and management is generally lacking in medical education. This book supplies much of that needed knowledge. My thanks to the authors.

Ms.McCaffery and Ms.Pasero's excellent tome on the realms of our population suffering from pain is one of the finest I have ever read.
I am a physiologist that has been active in the care of pain patients for many years. What the authors have provided us is an amazing compulation of help, scientific and clinical pearls that will help us help others.
PLEASE purchase this excellent book if you are a health care provider who deals with pain issues, or a patient or family member who deals with a patient experiencing chronic pain.
Pain is an invisable disease. The authors examine all elements of treatment of a complete realm of pain conditions and treatment options.

It is not often one finds a text that is useful on a day to day basis. This text is truly a gem in providing information for physicians, nurses, technicians and other personnel who deal with people living with pain on a day to day basis. Numerous charts, diagrams, understandable explanations are attractive. The amount of reproducible information alone (patient education materials, pain evaluation assessment tools, etc.) make this book a MUST HAVE!!!

I found this book so helpful to me in my practice, that I bought a second copy - leave one in the office, and one at home so that whenver I need a reference, it is right there. Margo and Chris have provided those of us interested in pain managment with a jewel - this book just has it all. And they generously allow you to photocopy patient education materials.
It is the best thing out there. My only regret about this book is the quality of the paper - too thin, and when you use it all the time, it tears easily. I hope in the third edition the publisher will upgrade the paper. I would be willing to spend more for better quality paper.
So, on a scale of 0 - 10, with 0 being blah and 10 being SUPER, this book is a 20!!!

Absolutely the most complete and best resource for pain management. A must for any clinician interested in pain management. McCaffery is a recognized and respected nursing expert in pain management and shares her knowledge and expertise in this manual with concise information and many reproducible materials that can be used in clinical practice. As a nurse educator and hospice nurse, this manual is my bible for teaching about pain management and managing pain in my patients.

This book is superbly written. It is an invaluable tool in my day-to-day interaction with patients in pain. The patient evaluation tools and charts alone make this an indispensible tool for anyone involved in the care of pain patients. I highly recommend it!

Ten years + ago I took a class in Pain management where McCaffrey's first book was the text. It was an incredible learning experience. Imagine, physcians prescribe less pain medication than needed to resolve pain and nurses give about half that amount. Why? Because as a society we are fearful of addiction and we make judgements about people who have difficulty handling pain. We don't realize the true cost of 'toughing' it out. This book is comprehensive and readable. Ms. McCaffrey et al make their case for intelligent pain control rather than knee jerk reactions. By far a blue ribbon winner in this category.
