Cancer pain management continues to be inadequately treated despite more than three decades of educational seminars, national guidelines, and patient awareness. All of these efforts have failed to overcome recognized barriers to adequate pain management during the treatment of cancer even at tertiary care academic medical centers. While complex oncologic therapeutics have been incorporated into routine practice, the principles of cancer pain management continue to be ignored even though they are straight-forward and can be applied in every practice.
