Quality of life guides


This guide for patients and their families, published in partnership with the American Academy of Neurology, reflects greater public awareness of pain as a major clinical and social problem. To enable patients to play a more active role in pain management, Dr. Gould (LSU Pain Mastery Center, Louisiana State U. Health Sciences Center, New Orleans) overviews the anatomy of pain, what patients should tell their doctors, treatment options (dispelling myths about opioid use), and special considerations for the elderly and women. A glossary and resources are included.
