Pain Management and Palliative Care

Italian version

The service deals with the problem of the pain in cancer patient.

All IRST doctors and nurses train constantly on the aspects regarding pain evaluation and treatment. For more complex situations, IRST has a palliative care specialist giving specific advice for all IRST patients, in collaboration with the Forlì-Romagna AUSL Palliative Care Unit.

The “Pain Management and Palliative Care” service coordinates the “secure discharge” from the hospital (through the organization of home assistance or the transfer at the local Hospices for patients living outside the area).

The doctors of Pain Management and Palliative Care are involved in the management of palliative care clinical trials, and they also participate to pathology groups’ scientific, clinical and organizational briefings.

Since 2009 IRST is credited as “Designated Centre of Integrated Oncology and Palliative Care” at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO).
