Now in a revised and expanded second edition, this classic text provides comprehensive coverage of the most advanced methods for assessing the person in pain. The volume addresses the full range of issues that influence patients' perception and reporting of pain, as well as their responsiveness to treatment - physical pathology, psychosocial factors, and behavioral variables. Leading authorities describe the available instruments and best procedures, review their limitations and advantages, and provide practical information and guidelines for assessing prevalent pain syndromes. The volume has been updated throughout to reflect the latest research findings, conceptual developments, innovative methods, and directions for future investigation. The second edition has been substantially expanded, featuring new chapters on diagnostic injections, assessment of physical functioning, family assessment, pre surgical psychological screening, assessment of psychiatric disorders, diagnostic imaging, and issues related to conducting outcomes research and clinical trials. Additionally, coverage of specific syndromes has been augmented with new chapters on neuropathic pain, complex regional pain, and chronic pelvic pain.


"The authoritative text on the assessment of patients with chronic pain has been updated and made even more useful. Researchers and clinicians will find this book a dependable and thorough review of pain measurement, behavioral assessment, medical and psychological evaluation, and outcomes studies. No single book does a better job on these topics. This book belongs in the library of all those who provide care to or undertake research on patients with chronic pain."--John D. Loeser, MD, Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Washington"This is a remarkably scholarly yet readable volume. The internationally known authors provide in-depth explanations of the basic issues and balanced discussions of the controversial ones. The diversity and breadth of coverage make this book superior to many much larger texts. It accomplishes the critically important task of teaching assessment of both the diseases that cause pain and the persons who suffer from pain. It will serve as a useful introductory text for medical students and graduate students in psychology, and as a source of broader knowledge for pain medicine practitioners whose strengths lie in particular disciplines."--Edward C. Covington, MD, Director, Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio"Turk and Melzack have set out to provide a comprehensive review of pain assessment, and they have clearly achieved their goal. Chapter authors are authoritative, well-regarded clinicians and researchers, and their contributions are thought-provoking and concise, with surprisingly little overlap. The book not only covers time-honored theories, questions, and concerns, but also addresses contemporary issues brought about by new discovery and technology. A'must' for pain researchers and clinicians, this volume is also well-suited for classroom use."--Daniel M. Doleys, PhD, Director, Pain and Rehabilitation Institute at Montclair, Birmingham, AL

Author Biography:

Dennis C. Turk, PhD, is the John and Emma Bonica Professor of Anesthesiology and Pain Research at the University of Washington. He was the recipient of the American Psychological Association, Division of Health Psychology, Outstanding Scientific Contribution Award and the American Association of Pain Management's Janet Travell Award. He has over 300 publications and has written and edited 13 volumes. Dr. Turk is currently editor-in-chief of [i]The Clinical Journal of Pain[/i]. Ronald Melzack, PhD, studied psychology at McGill University. After receiving his PhD in 1954, he spent 5 years carrying out physiological research at the University of Oregon Medical School; University College London, England; and the University of Pisa, Italy. Currently he is back at McGill University as a Professor in the Department of Psychology. Dr. Melzack developed the McGill Pain Questionnaire, which is now the most widely used measurement tool for research on pain in human subjects. In addition to more than 200 papers on research and theory, he has written and edited five books. Drs. Turk and Melzack were recently identified among the top 10 leaders in the field of pain for their contributions to research and treatment development (survey of International Association for the Study of Pain membership, published in [i]The Pain Clinic[/i], 2001).
