Part of the What Do I Do Now?: Palliative Care series, Pain uses thought-provoking, real-world cases to illustrate concepts, approaches to therapy, and potential barriers to optimal care presented by a diverse panel of interdisciplinary authors. Pain is a frequent and distressing symptom
encountered by those with serious or life-limiting illness and may present in a multitude of fashions and from a wide array of etiologies. This book intertwines pharmacologic, nonpharmacologic, and ethical principles of pain control within case-based discussions, allowing readers to expect:

- Unique perspectives of pain control, from numerous essential members of the healthcare team;
- An engaging collection of cases that illustrate the most current approaches to the most commonly encountered pain syndromes in palliative care;
- Chapters that begin with cases and that utilize a conversational tone throughout, like a curb-side consult with a seasoned colleague.

Consisting of 46 chapters that cover everything from antidepressants to cannabis, cultural competency to bone pain, this volume is also a self-assessment tool that tests the reader's ability to answer the question, What do I do now?
