Pain remains an all too common feature of our lives and its alleviation
represents a ‘Grand’ challenge for healthcare practitioners. Although we

healthcare were privy to the broad range of approaches that were useful
in the management of pain.
There will never be enough pain specialists and practitioners to meet
the needs of all the patients who suffer in this way, thus for this knowledge

often requires a multidisciplinary approach yet the time spent learning
about pain in medical school and nursing, physiotherapy, and clinical
psychology training is limited and is often limited to a narrow perspective.
