Acute and chronic pain places a huge burden on our society. Approximately 10% of the population in Western countries report suffering from chronic pain, and both chronic and acute pain are responsible for high absenteeism in the workplace. It is therefore crucial that we have effective ways of treating pain. Unfortunately though, we have no objective measures of pain - no blood tests, no urine dipsticks. We have to rely on what the patient tells us. So how then do we know what are and what are not effective pain treatments? It is here that the principles of evidence-based medicine have been of great value - helping us to understand the most effective forms of pain treatment.
Bandolier's Little Book of Pain is a unique portable guide to evidence-based pain treatments. For each possible treatment, the book provides the evidence supporting the efficacy of the treatment, along with a clinical bottom line, for those requiring immediate information. Written by world leaders in the field of evidenced-based pain treatments, the book will be indispensable for the multi-disciplinary professionals managing acute and chronic pain in primary and secondary care.

This is an essential shelf/ visiting bag item for any GP. Well written and laid out (same size as the standard Oxford Handbooks so fits in your bag) I don't know what I'd do without it.
Don't be put off by the title. Though concise and compact this is far from a 'little book' in every other respect. Moreover, its design arguably sets the standard... the brief text still delivers a punch... as truly pocket sized it has the advantage of being a mobile reference... this book is 5 star quality. This is an excellent reference. The authors arranged the book in such a way that it is easy for the reader to find a specific topic... This book will be usefulas a resource for all physicians.
