Uri Goldberg, MD, from Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center lays out a few important next steps for improving the pain management of patients with cancer.
He stresses the importance of a better, more specific definition of pain that can be easily expressed by all patients. As far as treatment, he points out that integrative therapies are being proven more and more effective for pain management, often without the same adverse effects as medication.
