Finally, our local Health Ministry launched its new Clinical Practice Guidelines For Cancer Pain, developed by the Pain
Association of Singapore in October 2003. The ministry has also produced a companion brochure for patients and their families
so that they can better understand the problem and its solutions.
This brochure should be readily available at the various medical institutions in Singapore.

The primary goal of this web site is to help plan near the end of life, and to maximize the patient's quality of life during
this difficult time, which also adddresses pain control.
This site enables pain clinicians and other medical professionals to communicate with each other in an effort to improve
patient care and reduce suffering.
