About this Video

Pain and palliative care activists articulate why untreated pain is a top-priority global health issue.

They emphasize how important effective pain control is in the treatment of all patients living with pain from cancer and other diseases.

We see how pain control can help patients become functional individuals to live the lives they need to live.

Dr Kathleen Foley (USA), Dr Bernard Lapointe (Canada), patient Lorraine (USA) and Lorraine’s daughter Deanna (USA) provide notable quotes:
