Pain Management in Nursing Practice – History
In response to an invitation from SAGE publishers in 2011 to write a textbook on pain management, I enquired if it would be possible to collaborate with the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) to write the IASP nursing curriculum into book format. The editors of SAGE (Mr Alex Clabburn) and IASP (Professor Maria Adele Giamberardino, Editor in Chief) very kindly agreed to discuss the idea of collaboration on the first book format of an IASP Curriculum.
After a two-year negotiation process between the Senior Editors and the Editorial Boards of publishers SAGE and the IASP, permission was granted in the last week of December 2012.
Writing on the book began in January 2013 and was completed towards the end of 2014. The book was published in January 2015 and has received very positive reviews.
I was especially honoured to have the book launched at the Irish Pain Society 15th Annual Scientific Meeting (IPS15ASM) on 26th September 2015 in Dublin by the then President of IASP, Professor Rolf-Detlef Treede.
I would like to thank the Editors and Boards of SAGE and IASP, past President of IASP, Professor Rolf-Detlef Treede, past IPS President, Professor Laserina O’Connor, IPS President, Professor David Finn, Officers and Committee of the Irish Pain Society for their support and encouragement for this prestigious book project which was a huge privilege for me.
