Cancer patients often suffer with pain. Ranging from acute and severe to mild and chronic, pain can and should be addressed in different ways in an attempt to improve quality of life.
We will discuss a variety of techniques that can address all levels of pain. From drug combinations to surgical interventions, this talk intends to offer the audience a plethora of methods of anesthesia and analgesia readily available in most specialty hospitals.


Learning Objectives:
1. Be familiar with the major groups of drugs that are used for analgesia in cancer patients and be able to list at least one example in each category such as NSAIDs and opioids.
2. In addition to medications, be familiar with physical methods of analgesia such as hot and cold compresses, massage, TENS, and laser therapy.
3. Develop a working knowledge of common side effects of drugs that are frequently used for analgesia in cancer patients.
