Patient-related Barriers to Pain Management among Cancer Patients
Keywords:Cancer Pain, Barriers, Pain Management.
Recently, despite the development of cancer pain treatment, many cancer patients still suffer from pain.
This review aimed to explore the patients-related barriers to pain management among cancer patients.
The electronic searching was conducted in a different database: Google Scholar, CINAHL and PubMed.
According to previous studies barriers can classified into patients/family- related barriers, health care
provided-related barriers, and institutional-related barriers. Patient-related barriers were reluctant to report
pain, fear from tolerance, addiction, and side effect, and culture. This review provides summary data about
the patient-barriers to effective cancer pain control.
