Cancer Pain Relief and Palliative Care in Children. Second Edition, 1998. (Companion volume to Cancer Pain Relief with a Guide to Opioid Availability)
(1998; 86 pages)

Abstract

A number of fears and misunderstandings have led to inadequate pain control in children with cancer. The intention is to clear up the misunderstanding and provide the missing information, and thus offer a comprehensive guide to pain management in childhood cancer.

The guidelines contained in this book have been approved by both WHO and IASP. Although intended largely for health-care workers with primary responsibility for treating children with cancer, the book should find wider readership among policy-makers and those concerned with the legislation that governs availability of opioid analgesics. It is a companion volume the WHO’s cancer Pain relief, published in its second edition in 1996 and containing a guide to opioid availability.
