Boswell (pain medicine, anesthesiology, Case Western Reserve U., Cleveland, Ohio) and Cole (a consultant in pain management) have undertaken the mammoth task of editing the 7th edition of this essential text, the official textbook of the American Academy of Pain Management, an organization founded by the text's first editor, Richard S. Weiner (d.2002). Now 3.5" deep, the 7th ed. reflects the continuing expansion in the field. There are 104 chapters, in 13 sections, including behavioral approaches, procedures and techniques, integrative and complementary approaches, electrical and magnetic therapies, special populations, legal and ethical considerations, and beliefs, religion, and spirituality. Five chapters have been included on practice issues, including starting a pain clinic and implementing a pain management program. The Academy's code of ethics, bill of rights, credentialing, and other information are included in appendices. The chapters are written by American specialists in medicine, social work, and psychology, among other fields.
