Description

Pain and cancer cannot be dissociated. A particular feature observed in children is that the child exhibits a certain psychomotor atony with increasing pain. The child complains less and less, making it difficult to recognize the degree of suffering and provide adequate relief. The most painful events for the child are iatrogenic: local care, puncture, injection, infusion, sample taking. The healthcare team must limit such events to the strict minimum.
