Portenoy R.K. A Clinical Guide to Opioid Analgesia. New York: McGraw
The intent of this book is to help clinicians make practical sense of the varied
and often conflicting issues (pharmacological, clinical, and regulatory) surrounding
opioid pharmacotherapy, in order to promote the most healthful outcomes possible
for patients in pain. The aim is to improve knowledge and skills related to
both the principles of prescribing and the management of risk. In this way,
healthcare professionals and those they serve may benefit increasingly from
the unique therapeutic potential of this drug class, and fear less the undeniable,
yet manageable, potential for harm.
