Article/Chapter Title: Pain management
Abstract: Pain is one of the common symptoms that clinicians manage in the field of palliative medicine. Clinicians managing patients with pain need to do so as best as they can to ensure that each patient has a quality of life that is acceptable to them, their caregivers, and family members. This chapter is to serve as a quick guide for the radiation oncologist to use in managing the pain experienced by their patients.While radiation helps with pain, other modalities are considered to help with pain such as pharmacologic options (opioids and nonopioids) and other nonpharmacologic options. The radiation oncologist managing a patient with pain should be aware of all these modalities. © 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
