Management of Cancer-Related Pain


Management of Cancer-Related Pain

Paul L Desandre et al. Emerg Med Clin North Am. .


Patients and families struggling with cancer fear pain more than any other physical symptom. There are also significant barriers to optimal pain management in the emergency setting, including lack of knowledge, inexperienced clinicians, myths about addiction, and fears of complications after discharge. In this article, we review the assessment and management options for cancer-related pain based on the World Health Organization (WHO) 3-step approach.
