European Nurse Society Calls to Action on Breakthrough Cancer Pain
Date:10/7/2010

ient discomfort. We believe that oncology nurses have an important role in identifying and managing Breakthrough Cancer Pain and with this initiative we hope to make oncology nurses across Europe realise that and bring their skills into play," says Yvonne Wengstrom, Associated Prof. of Cancer Nursing at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm and former president of EONS.

To drive the Breakthrough Cancer Pain Initiative, a European working group of oncology nurses with a special interest in palliative care has been formed. As a first step the working group has prepared a survey that will look into the general understanding of Breakthrough Cancer Pain amongst oncology nurses, confidence in treating these episodes, examples of best practice as well as gaps in current practice.

A multidisciplinary advisory group of recognised international experts in the field of Breakthrough Cancer Pain provides further expertise to the development of the survey and provides insights on Breakthrough Cancer Pain based on their knowledge within palliative care in general and Breakthrough Cancer Pain in particular.

"The survey will provide valuable information about any knowledge gaps and whether there is a need for further education. Based on this information the second stage of this project will involve the Breakthrough Cancer Pain Working Group considering what materials could be developed to best help the nursing community to improve the outcome of Breakthrough Cancer Pain management," says Jenske Geerling, oncology nurse at the University Medical Center at Groningen, The Netherlands and member of the Breakthrough Cancer Pain Working Group.

The survey, which is the first of its kind, will run over the next couples of weeks in The Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, The Netherlands, and The UK. The countries have been carefully selected in order to provide a broad platform for examining palliative care
