Pain and Cancer

Post by pennycsf » Sat Apr 20, 2013 12:50 pm

Here you will find the newly translated booklet Pain and Cancer. This 146 page booklet is a very detailed and useful guide to why people experience pain and how it can be managed. It has been written in self contained sections so that it does not need to be consulted as a whole. It is followed by a series of Information Sheets, again self contained, and a glossary of terms which may be relevant to pain and pain control.

This booklet forms part of the series of "Guides Info pour les patients" (Cancer info patient guides) published by INCa who have given CSF an exclusive right to translate these into English and reproduce and use them freely.
