Written specifically for nurses, this clinical handbook provides unmatched comprehensive information on pain management for the vulnerable neonatal population. Given the possibility of significant short- and long-term consequences of neonatal pain if left unmanaged, all nurses in neonatal settings should be familiar with the origins of neonatal pain, pain assessment, and the pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic pain management techniques outlined and explained in this clinical guide.

The book is ground-breaking in that it provides pearls for the recognition and management of multiple childhood chronic pain syndromes.

While there are no firm standards in pediatric chronic pain, a care plan is offered to help guide practitioners when possible. The book will consist of 24 chapters, many co-written by a physician and a psychologist. Chapter 1 covers the history of pediatric chronic pain, the advancement pediatric pain as a clinical subspecialty, development of pediatric pain clinics, and characterization of the common pain syndromes. Chapters 2-4 cover, respectively, the research on early pain exposure and neuroplasticity, theories on the common adolescent pain syndromes, and the demographics of chronic pain in children. Chapters 5-16 discuss approaches to assessment and intervention for specific pediatric and adolescent pain syndromes. Chapters 17-23 address interventional techniques such as therapeutic blocks, neurablation, implantable systems, physical therapy, complementary therapy, and pharmacology including opioid tolerance. The final chapter discusses the role of the nurse practitioner in pediatric chronic pain.
