Virginia LeBaron, APRN, PhD, FAAN, post-doctoral research fellow, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses a study that looked at how cancer outpatients and health care providers talk about pain.

LeBaron says cancer pain continues to be a major problem for cancer patients and their family members. For the study, LeBaron and colleagues listened to audio recordings of outpatient visits to examine how patients and their health care providers discussed pain management.

LeBaron says the study showed that conversations about pain are complex. Patients who felt that their pain needs were not adequately addressed kept coming back to the issue of pain during the visit, LeBaron says.
