Acute Pain is a peer-reviewed international journal, and has a specific emphasis on the clinical presentation and treatment of acute pain, in particular the practical issues of organisation, techniques, safety and efficacy. The topics covered will reflect the multidisciplinary approach taken, making it the only journal devoted specifically to acute pain and its management. The journal covers all areas of acute pain management including: post-operative pain, post-traumatic pain and acute disease related pain.
The balance of subject matter published in the journal is determined by the editor. The international editorial board provides guidance on the direction the journal should take and by reviewing submitted manuscripts, helps to set and maintain high quality standards.
Acute Pain also provides information on forthcoming meetings and events, critically reviews newly published books as an aid to the selection of books for your library and encourages links with organisations working in the field of pain management.Electronic usage:
