The Author


Dr Gillian Lauder MB BCh, FRCA, Dip (Med Ed), FRCPC, is a Paediatric Anaesthesiologist with over 20 years of clinical experience. She has an extensive expertise in the assessment and management of acute and chronic pain in children. She currently works at BC Childrens’ Hospital Vancouver, Canada. Her subspeciality interest in paediatric anesthesia and pain management is regional or interventional pain techniques.  Her desire to see this book published comes from the need to have appropriate material for teenagers with CRPS to read and take on board in their own time which compliment explanations and difficult concepts addressed in the pain management clinic.

Roslyn Massey is currently a high school student. She co-wrote the text, and translated medical jargon, so the book maintained its aim to be a clear and useful guide for people of her age.

Shona Massey is currently a high school student. She illustrated the book, painted the front cover and provided feedback on the content and presentation of the book.
