Given the pain through which cancer patients undergo, a multidimensional approach can help in the pain management process. Good practices in cancer management indicate that many options are available, hence, the need to use a personalized therapeutic program. The approach is vital because it ensures that cancer is viewed in multiple dimensions. The strategy is also vital because it ensures that individuals can indulge in randomized control trials before the implementation of a treatment strategy.
