In this yearbook for 2014 we present you with the latest research on pain management. We start out with the ethical mind of “Dr Feelgood”, discuss social isolation among adults with chronic pain and you will also find several chapters related to mindfulness and pain. Oncologic pain is discussed and dated in many chapters and it is our hope that you as the reader will find the information of interest and useful. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
