Cancer Pain

The SIG on Cancer Pain aims to:

  • Allow a forum to allow interchange regarding cancer pain treatment and research between clinicians and scientists.
  • Encourage the advancement of cancer pain research by establishing cancer pain research networks and organizing courses in cancer pain research.
  • Disseminate information regarding cancer pain to IASP members and others.
  • Identify and implement programs and projects that advance the goal of improving the treatment of cancer pain in both developing and developed worlds.

The IASP SIG on Cancer Pain keeps an archive of newsletters starting with issues published in 2013.
