This chapter discusses the care of a patient who is being managed in a disjointed fashion. It describes a complex patient with a standard back pain problem where a failure of effective communication leads to an unhappy customer and a disgruntled and bewildered family. It draws on this experience to show how teams like the pain service can occasionally work to improve collaboration and communication. It also describes the medical treatments that pain clinics may offer.
