In contrast to the days when children were thought to experience less pain than adults, we now know that this is not the case and that prolonged exposure to pain may predispose children to chronic pain syndromes later in life. For these reasons, pain management has become an essential part of pediatric care. Pediatric Chronic Painreflects current advances in the field, offering the pediatric specialist a comprehensive evidence base for the understanding, accurate assessment, and developmentally appropriate treatment of pain in children, from neonates to adolescents. The work of respected physicians and psychologists, this practical guide provides definitive information on frequently encountered syndromes, assessment tools, a wide range of mainstream and complementary intervention strategies (with special attention to opioid tolerance and tapers), and palliative care. Its groundbreaking coverage:
