Abstract

This issue of Healing Hands explores some of the reasons why pain suffered by individuals who are homeless is often under-treated. Articles focus on pain assessment techniques, recommended treatment modalities to alleviate acute and chronic pain, and therapeutic challenges presented by patients who self-medicate with alcohol or illicit drugs to cope with unrelieved pain (authors).
