TI - Pain in the pediatric oncology patient

AB - Pediatric oncology nurses face many challenges in treating the pain associated with childhood cancer.

The type and severity of pain children with cancer experience varies from acute, short-term, procedure-

related pain to the progressive chronic pain associated with terminal illness. In addition, the unfounded fears

of using strong narcotic analgesics and the underutilization of psychological techniques to treat pain in

children limit the effectiveness of pain management. Armed with objective data, pediatric oncology nurses

can work with other members of the cancer treatment team to provide relief from the pain associated with

the diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer.
