A book written by clinicians for clinicians that presents a broad view
of the clinical applications of opioids; it covers the pharmacology
of opioids and its clinical application in a wide range of situations
from acute to chronic cancer and non-cancer pain across ages from
paediatric to geriatric populations.
It also covers the socio-historical, ethical, legal and criminal aspects
related to the use of opioids, and includes the limitations of opioids
as well as recommended precautionary measures when prescribing
these drugs. For the busy clinician who has to manage pain either
as a generalist or a specialist, this is a very handy text to keep within
