Ahead of world cancer day (which falls on 4 February 2019), the World Health Organization has come out with new evidence-based guidelines for the management of cancer pain. Please click here to download the guidelines in pdf format.
Don’t have the time to go through the whole thing? Take a peek at the summary as a PowerPoint presentation.
Pallium India’s WHO Collaborating Centre for Training and Policy on Access to Pain Relief is proud to have been a part of the process. Dr Varghese Cherian of WHO, Geneva, deserves our profound thanks.
(Edit: In an earlier version of the blog, we had mistakenly given Feb 4 as world palliative care day. Feb 4, 2019 is world cancer day. We regret the error.)
