Closs, SJ, Chatwin, J and Bennett, MI (2009) Cancer pain management at home (II): does age influence attitudes towards pain and analgesia? Support Care in Cancer, 17 (7). 781 - 786 . ISSN 1433-7339Full text available as:
Older patients experience a higher prevalence of pain, including cancer pain, than other age groups and tend to receive poorer pain management. The reasons for unnecessary suffering resulting from pain among older patients are not well understood. This study aimed to identify barriers to cancer pain management for older patients living at home and to compare these with a younger control group.
