For twenty-two years she worked as a public health nurse with cancer patients and caregivers. She found herself saying the same things over and over, passing along very basic information that can make an enormous difference in effectively dealing with cancer pain. These are simple things that many people should know but don’'t. She has never found a book that she could recommend to her patients that would be helpful in managing their pain. By using diagrams and illustrations, she taught her patients the dynamics of pain and the importance of taking their medications around the clock and of keeping accurate records. When followed faithfully, the simple suggestions and guidelines in this book are very effective in managing serious and intense pain.
