Pain is complex....
We recognise that pain management is complex. Therefore, we have provided some links to pain problems which are beyond the scope of this course.
We will not cover neuropathic pain specifically, even though it is common in cancer, because it typically does not respond well to opioids. Nor does this course educate about opioids for chronic non-cancer pain. We have, however, provided some links to sources of information and guidance on painful conditions beyond the scope of this module for your information.
Move onto the next step to find out how our patient, Terry, has been managing with his cancer pain.
