This manual describes the inpatient treatment programme of one of the worlda€™s largest treatment facility for chronic pain in children a€“ The German Paediatric Pain Centre a€“ and the guidance provided is also applicable to outpatient pain management. Epidemiology, aetiology, diagnostics and treatment principles are all examined in detail. Criteria for inpatient treatment are explained, and the structure and organisation of a treatment centre for chronic pain are described. Therapeutic interventions are presented with the aid of many examples of pain management and health care from clinical practice.
