Module 12 - Pain Management - Management of Cancer Pain: Other Analgesic Approaches and End-of-Life Care
Most patients with advanced cancer (60% to 80%) require treatment for pain. Pain may be experienced in many patients with earlier stages of cancer or who have been successfully treated but have persistent pain. Effective management for cancer-related pain is well established and guidelines exist for its treatment, which have been endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and other professional societies and government agencies. Despite the availability of effective treatments, cancer pain remains undertreated. Should you have technical questions, please contact the AMA Unified Service Center at 1-800-621-8335.
