Pain management in cancer patients: A multidisciplinary perspective.
Pain is a common symptom in cancer patients, and it can significantly affect their quality of life. Pain management in cancer patients requires a multidisciplinary approach that involves the patient, the primary care physician, and specialists in palliative care, oncology, and pain management. This article provides an overview of the multidisciplinary perspective on pain management in cancer patients, including the assessment of pain, pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments, the importance of communication and patient education, and the barriers to effective pain management. Understanding the multidisciplinary approach to pain management can help healthcare providers provide optimal care for cancer patients.Author(s): Michael John
