en Limba Engleză Hardback – 10 Jan 2013
This book is the first of its kind. Everyone realizes the importance of the psychosocial aspect of pain; indeed it is the subject of many papers. This book goes one step further and traces the roots of this aspect to its origin, the patient's culture and ethnicity, and provides hope that better understanding will lead to better evaluation and better pain control. This is a must read, not only for physicians, but also for nurses, psychologists, and social workers.
