The successful management of bone pain depends on adequate assessment, appropriate treatment, and adequate reassessment (i.e. assessment of the treatment) (Davies, 2002). Inadequate assessment may lead to ineffective treatment, or even inappropriate treatment. Similarly, inadequate reassessment may lead to continuance of ineffect-ive/inappropriate treatment (and continuance of pain). This chapter will discuss the assessment of bone pain, and the general principles of management of bone pain.
