TOTAL PAIN: A MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH

Chris Sugden
Issued Date: 5 Jun 2013

Abstract


Through two distinctive case studies the author illustrates the complex nature of total pain. He describes how the physical, psychological social and spiritual elements of what it is to be human are so intertwined that they need the skills of a team of gifted professionals to help the patient and the family in their suffering. The discussion explores the pitfalls for professionals who retreat into their professional boundaries, and the benefits of a multidisciplinary approach.
