It is very hard to recognize the amount of pain your loved one is in. One of the biggest problems for managing pain is that many people are referred for care too late. By starting this type of care early, and by using the right type of pain management, nearly all pain problems can be relieved or reduced. You can receive pain management on Hospice and Palliative Care.
All patients experiencing “Chronic and intractable pain” will qualify for care. Managing the pain and other symptoms support the quality of life and is focused on patients with serious and advanced illnesses.

- Oral medicines. These can be taken in pill or liquid form and can be short-acting or long-acting (a sustained release).
- Adhesive patch. This can be applied to the skin to release medicine over time. An example of this is a fentanyl patch.
- Opioid drug injection. This shot may be given under the skin or into a muscle.
- Opioid drug IV. An opiate may be given directly into the blood through an intravenous line.
- Medicine pump. Opiate medicine can be given through a pump attached to an IV line that you control. This is called patient-controlled analgesia.
Spinal injection. For pain that’s hard to control, a pain-control specialist may give an opioid drug directly into the spinal cord area.
This will be determined on the level of care your loved one is on, and how the patient’s body reacts to treatment
