Other components of total pain
This chapter discusses the components of total pain in terminal care. These are mental pain, social pain, spiritual pain, and staff pain. It is important to explore these problems in order for palliative care staff to better understand the suffering of each patient and to help both the patients and their families. Terminal care staff must not be trapped into thinking that pain only demands the immediate use of appropriate drugs.
