Physician acquisition of cancer pain management knowledge.
Insufficient physician education in cancer pain management (CPM) is one of the major factors contributing to inadequate pain relief of cancer patients throughout the world.
A survey of all physicians in direct patient care in Duluth, MN, (N = 243) was conducted to determine where they learned about CPM and how they would like to further their knowledge.
Responses from 150 physicians (62%) have been analyzed, especially focusing on physician age and specialty.
