Chronic and persistent pain, which is a problem for the individual who suffers and the society that has to deal with it, has become increasingly appreciated. Over the last three decades, several books and journals have been specifically devoted to the topic of pain, especially chronic and persistent pain. It has been increasingly recognized that chronic and persistent pain, unlike acute pain, involves significant psychosocial factors and requires treatment strategies that deal with these issues. All measurements and factors that affect improvement seem to be in the psychosocial area rather than the medical/ biological/physical areas. Psychosocial conveys the importance of the environmental and interpersonal factors of the patient's functioning. The writing of this book has brought together some of the leading researchers and clinicians in the area of managing the patient with chronic pain. The authors express their opinions based on experience and review of the literature available to date. Each of the chapters focuses on an important element of the assessment and/or treatment intervention utilized for the individual with chronic pain. The concluding chapter summarizes the status of the assessment and treatment strategies for those patients.

""Professor Rodham has written a fascinating book that challenges, quite rightly, the current beliefs and misconceptions around the self-management approach to chronic pain. This excellent book views it more as a supportive partnership than yet something else the individual with pain has to motivate themselves to do. A welcome addition to the improving the lives of people with chronic pain." (Dr Sue Peacock, Consultant Health Psychologist, UK) This book critiques the current approach to the self-management of persistent pain. The drive towards self-management of chronic pain is flourishing as healthcare systems struggle to facilitate the care of those with long term health conditions. In this book Karen Rodham argues that albeit an empowering idea, self-management has not yet been fully translated from idea to practice and as such, runs the risk of blaming and shaming the person living with a chronic condition for failing to manage their condition effectively. She contends that the additional stress of this tension may in fact worsen their condition. Drawing from the research evidence as well as her practice experience, she advocates a move away from the terms 'self' and 'management' towards a more collaborative approach. One which takes account of the life-context of the person who is living with persistent pain. This book explores the shortcomings of the tendency to focus on self-management without taking into account life context and considers how we got here and what can be done. It will be a valuable resource to researchers and practitioners, especially in the field of health psychology. Karen Rodham is Professor of Health Psychology at Staffordshire University, UK. Her research focuses on how people cope with challenging health conditions. Her interest in pain self-management stems from her practice experience as a health psychologist working in the NHS with people living with complex regional pain syndrome (CPRS)." -- Prové de l'editor.

The area of rehabilitation research for patients having persistent pain is on the move. The rapid growth in pain science has inspired rehabilitation clinicians and researchers around the globe. This has led to breakthrough research and implementation of modern pain science in rehabilitation settings around the world. Still, our understanding of persistent pain continues to grow, not in the least because of fascinating discoveries from areas such as psychoneuroimmunology, exercise physiology, clinical psychology and nutritional (neuro)biology. This offers unique opportunities to further improve rehabilitation for patients with chronic pain across the lifespan. Also, the diversity of health care disciplines involved in the rehabilitation of chronic pain (e.g. physicians, psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, coaches) provides a framework for upgrading rehabilitation for chronic pain towards comprehensive lifestyle approaches.

Treating Persistent Pain

Treating Persistent Pain

Chronic pain is a worldwide phenomenon that negatively impacts millions of individuals.

Chronic pain is a worldwide phenomenon that negatively impacts millions of individuals. This type of pain is beyond what is experienced in an acute injury and continues to endure for months or even years. Chronic pain can range in complexity, as co-morbid problems (e.g. depression, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal problems) are common, and can significantly impede efficacy of traditional treatment methods. Thus, the treatment of chronic pain must reflect the complexity of this condition in order to maximize relief and decrease the patient's suffering. The current treatment of pain is seriously limited by the scope and focus of those individuals entrusted to treat these problems. Many improvements and discoveries have been made over the past decades (in both medicine and psychology), and it is now more important than ever to shift pain management fully into the realm of multidisciplinary treatment.

Background and aims: Although several studies have been conducted, the knowledge about persistent pain after childbirth is still limited. The primary outcome was the incidence of persistent pain eight months after the labour. Pain intensity, frequency and bodily localisation as well as painu00b4s interference with daily activities were also examined.Material and methods: Data were obtained through two self-administrated questionnaires and the patient record system Obstetrix. The first questionnaire was distributed at the maternity ward to 1507 women during 24-36 hours after delivery and the second questionnaire was sent by post eight months after the childbirth. Results: Our results show, that 7.6% (n=89) had pain with onset during labour. Furthermore, 18% of the women reported pain during intercourse and 16% experienced pain during defecation. Over half of the women scored the intensity of their worst experienced pain as u2265 5 on a 10-point NRS. The pain interfered with womenu00b4s daily activities, more than 1 in 4 women scored the pain interference to 5 and higher on a scale 0-10. Almost 40% of the women had pain constantly or daily. Conclusions: The findings of this multicenter prospective cohort study indicate, that persistent pain after childbirth is a common condition among Swedish women and that the pain may have negative impact of womenu00b4s quality of life. There is a need to improve knowledge and education regarding pain as well as to develop strategies for prevention and treatment of persistent pain related to labour.

PROCEDURAL CONSENT DO ACUTE AND PERSISTENT PAIN WARRANT A MENTION

PROCEDURAL CONSENT u2013 DO ACUTE AND PERSISTENT PAIN WARRANT A MENTION? Background and introduction Persistent pain after surgery is well described (1, 2), as is the strong association between unrelieved acute pain and persistent postsurgical pain (PPSP). A surgeonu2019s failure to inform the patient of the risk of persistent pain after a surgical procedure has resulted in an appeal by a claimant against an NHS Trust (3). The claimant argued unsuccessfully that a breach of duty took place. MethodsAfter gaining institutional approval we undertook a prospective review of procedural consent forms of patients scheduled for intermediate and major cardiothoracic surgery (via minimally invasive and traditional surgical incisions) and cardiac device insertion (pacemakers and internal cardiac defibrillators) from 01.03.2019 u2013 31.05.2019 in a tertiary cardiothoracic institution. ResultsThe majority of written consent for procedures was undertaken by Specialist registrars (89%).Of the 279 patients included in this cohort, the majority were scheduled for intermediate (32.6%) or major thoracic (15.8%) surgery and cardiac surgery (36%) via median sternotomy. Of the total patients(279), 30.5% were consented for acute post-operative pain, and only 7.2% where consented for PPSPConclusionsPPSP is well established in the literature. Recent trends in judicial claims for chronic pain may change how we consent patients for surgical procedures. This review of consent practice will illustrate proportions of patients who have been consented for pain as part of their procedural consent. Following completion, the findings will be disseminated to raise awareness, promote discussion and promote changes in practice. 1. Gan T.
