The National Cancer Institute, in collaborations with the Johns Hopkins Oncology Center and the American Cancer Society, has developed new patient education resources designed to teach patients with cancer as well as their families and friends about cancer pain. The materials, many of which are also available in Spanish, focus on how to evaluate and communicate about pain symptoms and provide basic information on treatment options for the management of pain.
