Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The management of pain for older people with cancer is complex and multimodal. Older individuals are more likely than younger people to have other medical problems and disabilities; comorbidities may be a predictor of poorer pain control, greater symptom burden, greater functional impairment, increased use of healthcare services, and mortality.
