View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The regular use of morphine by mouth has done much to improve the management of pain in far-advanced cancer. This booklet serves as an introduction to the much wider subject of cancer pain management, and should be of interest to doctors and nurses working in this field. A parallel booklet is also available called "Oral Morphine: Information for Patients, Families and Friends". This new edition has been prepared in the light of several developments since 1984. Firstly, the campaign by the World Health Organization to improve cancer pain management globally. This emphasizes that analgesic drugs, and particularly oral morphine, are the mainstay of management. Secondly, a greater awareness of the need to distinguish between morphine-responsive and morphine-resistant pain. Third, the availability of slow-release tablets of morphine. The material in this booklet also appears in "Therapeutics in Terminal Cancer" (second edition, Churchill Livingstone, 1989).
