Course Details


Cancer Survivors, who are at a higher risk of chronic pain than the general population, require detailed assessment to help identify the cause of their pain. That assessment is the first step in developing a comprehensive treatment plan that controls your patient’s pain, improves quality of life, and increases functional status with minimal risks and adverse effects.

No matter how it’s described or defined, the experience of pain is unique to each person and can be complicated by emotional, physical, psychosocial, and spiritual issues.

This article focuses on cancer survivors who show no evidence of disease but are experiencing chronic pain.
