This book showcases the development and evaluation of innovative examples of pain management initiatives by advanced practitioners. It considers each service development or community initiative both in terms of advanced practice nursing and pain management. There is a wide range of examples of innovation in pain management included - from the introduction of ketamine use in one trust, to much wider issues, such as meeting the needs of pain management in the community. The book considers issues such as utilisation of research, education and interprofessional working in the advanced practitioner role. Each chapter looks at development of the service, challenges of implementation, evaluation of the service's success and justifying the importance of the advanced nurse in the service's achievements.* Underlying theory is considered but the focus of each chapter is the translation of knowledge and skills into practice* Written by expert advanced nurse practitioners with a wealth of experience in pain management* Explores pain management in primary and secondary care, both within and outside the NHS* Suitable for qualified nurses, Nurse Practitioners, specialist nurses working in the pain field and nursing students on postgraduate courses on pain management
