An international research group has produced 17 standards for diagnosing and managing complex regional pain syndrome. This is useful knowledge for clinicians, who need an update of their knowledge in this field.

 

The researchers present the standards in the academic paper ‘Standards for the diagnosis and management of complex regional pain syndrome: Results of a European Pain Federation task force’.

 

The 17 standards are grouped within 8 treatment areas: Diagnosis; management and referral of patients; prevention; patient information and education; pain management – medication and procedures; physical and vocational rehabilitation; identifying and treating distress and long-term care.

Perez, Serge Perrot, Astrid Terkelsen, Ilona Thomassen, Andrzey Zyluk, Chris Wells (see titles and affiliations in the original paper).
