Pain in Cancer – New Horizons

As the oncological landscape shifts in response to the improved diagnosis and treatment of malignancy, so the causes and types of pain encountered in cancer patients change. Pain is the most feared symptom of patients with advanced cancer and remains a major area of unmet clinical need. Poorly controlled pain results in markedly reduced quality of life and commonly impacts on treatment compliance and overall clinical outcomes. This seminar will provide an overview of current hot-topics in the field of cancer pain including; chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy, pain in cancer survivors and the challenges posed by the ‘opioid crisis’.
