Abstract

In a previous article (1), we presented the first phase of a project within the International Observatory on End of Life Care that is seeking to develop an analysis of the specific problem of cancer pain relief in its historical and cultural context (2). We offered a historical overview of major themes in cancer pain relief in the 20th century by exploring the interplay of regulatory, scientific, clinical, cultural and ethical dimensions – themes which continue to shape contemporary debate and practice. In this article, we present an overview of the second phase of the study in which we explore contemporary debate and practice in case studies of three fields of innovation that emerged from our earlier analysis of the history of cancer pain relief since 1945.
