Chapter 17 discusses paediatric cancer pain, and how each patient seems to follow a unique trajectory and, for the pain clinician, will present unique challenges that require agility and flexibility to design satisfactory pain treatment protocols. Using a systematic approach that encompasses the notion that pain in paediatric cancer is usually the result of multiple intersecting causes will usually provide satisfactory results for the patients and their watchdog families supervising their care. For the continually decreasing numbers of children who cannot survive their disease, our palliative care colleagues can continue multimodal pain management in conjunction with their pain management resources to ensure a dignified and comfortable end of life.
