Cancer Pain Fellowships?

I am a new-in-practice pain physician, having recently completed fellowship. I'm in an academic setting, but our center is looking for more experience with cancer pain management, and I didn't receive a ton of specific cancer pain management during fellowship. I'm wondering if you have any recommendations for specific cancer pain fellowships, or centers with really good exposure to cancer pain management? Thanks in advance!

In this report, we present a patient receiving a large dose of intrathecal opioids for refractory cancer pain, and who is also afflicted with pain-induced depression. Dexmedetomidine (DEX) was used as part of a multimodal analgesic regimen that successfully alleviated both the patient ’s pain and depression. An intrathecal infusion of DEX may serve as an adjuvant drug in the treatment of cancer pain and pain-related depression.

ConclusionTapentadol is effective and well tolerated in opioid-na ïve and opioid-tolerant patients with cancer pain of varying pathophysiology, including those with nociceptive and/or neuropathic components. Tapentadol may be considered for first-line use in moderate-to-severe cancer-related pain.

ConclusionPET/CT imaging has an established role in the diagnosis of some urological malignancies and, in specific clinical indications, is used because of the enormous potential to alter patient management. Besides the established roles of FDG PET/CT, the advances of novel radiotracers for PET/CT imaging in urological malignancies, such as PSMA PET/CT, allows evaluation in the settings of staging, recurrence, response to therapy, and prognosis. Furthermore, PET/CT imaging helps in planning and assessing response to treatment in theranostics. Molecular images identify early changes that conventional anatomical studies cann...

This is a review of the evidence from studies of the efficacy and tolerability of topically applied, high-concentration (8%) capsaicin in Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). Methods: For this review, we searched EMBASE and MEDLINE to 14 April 2020. The terms used in the search included capsaicin patch, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, cancer pain or malignant pain. Results: A total of 69 studies were obtained but only 5 were selected for the final analysis. Capsaicin 8% patch provides significant pain relief in CIPN, and may lead to regeneration and restoration of sensory nerve fibers.

AbstractChronic pancreatitis is a clinical entity that results from the progressive inflammation and irreversible fibrosis of the pancreas resulting from the cumulative injury sustained by the pancreas over time. It is an illness with variable presentations that can severely impact quality of life, while its long-term complications such as exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI), diabetes mellitus, and risk of pancreatic cancer can become life threatening. The diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis can be challenging as despite the recent advancements in imaging technology, the radiographic findings do not become prominent unti...

Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a common condition, loosely defined by some physicians as a stomach ache without a clear cause. More specifically, it is characterized by the feeling of fullness during or after a meal, or a burning sensation in the mid-upper abdomen, just below the rib cage (not necessarily associated with meals). The symptoms can be severe enough to interfere with finishing meals or participating in regular daily activities. Those with FD often go through multiple tests like upper endoscopy, CT scan, and gastric emptying study. But despite often-severe symptoms, no clear cause (such as cancer, ulcer disease, ...

Healthcare provider education is an effective strategy to improve knowledge and competencies in opioid prescribing practices. However, there are very few studies regarding this among providers of patients with cancer pain and nonmedical opioid use (NMOU). The aim of our study was to assess participants ’ attitudes, beliefs, and self-perceived confidence in caring for patients with cancer pain and NMOU before and after attending an opioid educational seminar on the use and nonmedical use of opioids in cancer patients.
