Evolving cancer treatment options include the newer perioperative protocols, radiation therapies, and chemo and immunotherapies, each resulting in pain syndromes that vary from the common expected symptom burdens from traditional treatments. This case-based, interactive session will expand learners’ understanding of some of the newer cancer treatment options and some of the pain sequelae of those treatments; and recommend approaches that can help those patients.
