Advisory board: M Johnson A Taylor
Volume discounts are available for bulk orders


Persistent (chronic) pain is a widespread and multidimensional problem that requires assessment accurately and quickly in primary care. Management pathways are available according to the cause of pain, recommending treatments and referral to community- or specialist-based services.

The 10-minute consultation: persistent pain is a practical pocket reference for the general practitioner to help in the accurate assessment and management of patients presenting with pain in primary care. It is packed full of clinical information and practical advice on how to carry out the necessary tests, examinations and investigations within the standard '10-minute' framework. Individual book chapters have been prepared by international experts in the field of pain management and are aligned with the British Pain Society's new pain patient pathways to ensure a consistent message.
