Interventional Pain Control in Cancer Pain Management

Joan Hester, Nigel Sykes, Sue Peat

This is a guide for healthcare professionals on the range of interventional pain management techniques available. 

The effective management of pain from cancer is a top priority for patients, carers and healthcare professionals, and has been the subject of extensive research.   Interventional cancer pain management implies the use of invasive techniques, such as neuraxial (epidural, intrathecal and intracerebroventricular) drug administration, brachial and lumbar plexus blocks, autonomic blockade, neurolytic blocks and cordotomy. It can also include TENS, acupuncture and complementary therapies.

This book describes specifically the difficult pain problems that are now faced in palliative care and highlights the need for greater collaboration between the disciplines of pain medicine and palliative care. It refers to the psychological and spiritual needs of patients, and provides patient experience data on specialist techniques. The book is an invaluable resource for all healthcare professionals working in palliative care, pain management, and primary care to inform them about the range of interventional techniques available, with evidence of efficacy, side effects and management advice.
