Designed for patients and caregivers alike, this site will help visitors understand the causes of cancer pain, how to assess varying levels of pain, and how to handle quality-of-life issues, such as interrupted sleep patterns, loss of appetite, and a decreased ability for work. The “Caregiver’s Guide” provides family members with important facts about finding the right pain medication, what to expect while a loved one is experiencing cancer-related pain, and how to help—assessing pain levels, dealing with medication side affects, and becoming an advocate when the patient is unable to express his or her needs.
