Pain is a significant problem for cancer patients and is of particular concern for the elderly.
This article reports on the development and implementation of a pain management educational intervention for elderly cancer patients and their family caregivers.
This patient education program was developed within a research study funded by the American Cancer Society.
Subjects were stratified as either elderly (60-75 years) or oldest (greater than 75 years) and then were randomly assigned to an experimental group that received the three-part, structured pain education program or a control group that received usual care.
Control group subjects were offered the intervention at the conclusion of data collection.
The outcomes of the pain education were measured at two times after the intervention.
