Description:
This guideline applies to healthcare professionals involved in the management of cancer pain. This includes Palliative Care staff, Physicians, Surgeons, General Practitioners,Pharmacists and Nursing staff in hospital,hospice and community-based settings. They may also be of interest to patients with cancer pain and their carers. This guideline does not apply to cancer survivors, to patients who do not have a cancer diagnosis or to other forms of acute or chronic non-malignant pain. This guideline does not apply to children. The National Clinical Guideline and the summary National Clinical Guideline are available on the websites www.health.gov.ie/patient-safety/ncec and www.hse.ie/palliativecareprogramme . The clinical burden of cancer pain is significant. Despite the advances in the management of pain since the first publication of the WHO cancer pain guidelines in 1986, there is evidence that there are significant variations in the success rates of its management. The increasing number of cancer survivors who live to an advanced age means that it is of paramount importance to reduce the prevalence of pain. The expected outcome of this guideline is to reduce cancer patient’s pain and to improve their quality of life. The National Clinical Programme for Palliative Care has developed National Clinical Guideline Number 10 for Management of Constipation in Adult Patients Receiving Palliative Care which complements this guideline
