Regardless of the setting in which they work, nurses are responsible for the assessment and management of clients with pain. Pain is a key consideration in all patient care, and nurses play a critical role in pain management. Indeed, throughout history nurses have made important contributions to our understanding and management of pain through research and clinical practice. This chapter aims to provide an introduction to some key concepts in pain management and to encourage you to reflect on some of your own assumptions about pain.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
