Many people who are dependent on addictive chemical agents first encounter these agents as prescription drugs for a painful, usually chronic, medical condition. While the roles of psychologists and psychiatrists are key in treating these patients, the role of the physician who initially prescribed the drug and who manages the patient's medical condition has only recently been addressed, and it is now emerging as an important new area in medicine. In addition to the problem of dependency itself, once a patient becomes dependent, it significantly affects ongoing treatment of the medical problem. This new book, written by the top names in the field, addresses these important issues.
Part I: Introduction ; Part II: Addiction and related issues ; Part III: The problem of clinical pain ; Part IV: Current approaches to management of the chemically dependent patient ; Part V: Clinical management of pain in chemical dependency ; Part VI: Aberrant drug-taking considerations ; Part VII: Pain and chemical dependency: The Interface
"I think that the idea is great. In fact, I gave a talk myself on this topic at the recent AAN meeting. Given the scope of the project and the authors involved, I would buy this book sight unseen." - Ronald Kanner, MD, Professor of Neurology and Associate Dean, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York; Chairman, Department of Neurology, Long Island Jewish Hospital |k No
