Summary

Breakthrough pain is a common occurrence in patients with cancer pain, and is often associated with a deleterious effect on daily life, impairing quality of life substantially. It is a heterogeneous condition, and management needs to be individualized.

This valuable pocketbook discusses the clinical features of breakthrough cancer pain and the different strategies for management. It covers assessment, treatment, and reassessment. It also reviews the evidence for pharmacological interventions, like rapid onset opioids, as well as non-pharmacological interventions and disease modifying treatments.

This new edition has been thoroughly updated to account for recent developments within the field. These updates ensure that Cancer-Related Breakthrough Pain (Oxford Pain Management Library) continues to be an invaluable resource for specialists and trainees in palliative care and pain management, as well as being a quick reference guide for GPs, specialist nurses, and other healthcare professionals.
