Numerous national guidelines have addressed the ethical issues of pain management. Despite these efforts, many cancer patients get inadequate pain control. While there are many reasons for this situation, part of the problem is the complexity of applying these ethical standards to particular cases. In an effort to strengthen such clinical judgment, this essay analyzes two cases of pain management for cancer patients.
