This comprehensive book is designed to help health professionals of all disciplines who work with children gain understanding and skill in how to approach and treat children's pain, and help children understand and cope with their own pain. Pain is the most common reason for children to seek a medical consultation and sometimes the most common reason for avoiding it. This book examines children`s fears and anxieties that accompany their need for pain relief, and gives health professionals communication skills and words to calm these fears. Without doubt, this volume will become a standard on pediatric pain management for many years to come.
