Cancer Pain

Getting the balance right – achieving good patient care and preventing opioid diversion

In this module we learn about the adverse impact of not treating cancer pain affects patients, their closest relationships and the practice of health care, and the benefits of early initiation of palliative care and access to pain medication can mitigate many of these effects.

What will I learn in this module?

  • An understanding of the impact of not treating cancer pain on the patient, their closest relationships, the healthcare practitioner, and the healthcare system
  • Insight into the factors that influence a judicious balance between good patient care and avoiding diversion of opioids
  • An awareness of the benefits of the palliative care offering
  • An approach to some of the clinical complexities of cancer pain management.

Launching soon.
