Abstract
This comprehensive guide to geriatric pain management provides the most current information available on assessment and treatment of pain in older adults. In a concise, reader-friendly format, the book provides techniques, tips, and tools for assessing pain and examines barriers to appropriate treatment. It addresses the physiological and psychosocial factors underlying the process and occurrence of pain and helps nurses to develop a comprehensive multimodal approach to pain management that includes pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions. The guide provides detailed coverage of medications commonly used for pain management, including all contraindications and side effects, so that nurses will be able to evaluate the best use of a medication in the context of comorbidities and sensitivities of each individual. Also addressed are chronic illnesses common to the elderly population, palliative and hospice care, treatment of concurrent depression and anxiety, treatment of cognitively impaired elderly, and techniques for assessment and intervention in cases of substance abuse.

Abstract
Focuses on the assessment and treatment of individuals with psychiatric conditions and those whose life circumstances generate significant challenges to their mental health and well-being. The authors build on a foundation of theoretically informed, evidence-based and person-centered practices to define the therapist's role as an integral member of the health-care team. This is the major occupational therapy text to incorporate a recovery-oriented perspective as both a philosophy and guideline for assessment and intervention. It organizes its content on the Person-Environment-Occupation (PEO) model, which promotes full participation in the everyday lives of individuals with mental illness and those struggling with psychosocial issues related to their disabilities. It uses Evidence-Based Practice boxes to provide a synthesis of major research in the area and implications for practice. It emphasizes The Lived Experience of mental illness and recovery, recognizing the whole person and his or her state of physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental health, while also addressing co-occurring conditions such as depression, stroke, substance abuse, spinal cord injury, attention deficit disorder, and learning disabilities. It features a personal narrative in each chapter to reinforce a first-person, client-centered approach that illustrates the confluence of the person, environment, and occupational construct from various perspectives.
