The changing landscape of pain management in palliative care: Long term opioid therapy?

The Cicely Saunders International Annual Lecture is an annual event hosted by the Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London.

This year's lecture will be given by Professor Per Sjøgren, Professor in Palliative Medicine in Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen. 

In his lecture Prof Sjøgren will consider the complex issue of distorted patterns of global opioid availability and accessibility, the need for a balanced approach to opioid treatment, and the need to adapt palliative care opioid guidelines to reflect changing trajectories of cancer diseases and pain management in non-cancer. Public information and training of healthcare professionals are necessary to ensure safe management and evidence-based prescribing of opioid analgesics in cancer and non-cancer.


This event will take place on Microsoft Teams on Wednesday 8 December, 17.00-18.00. 


The Annual Lecture is free and CPD approved (1 point) by the Royal College of Physicians.
