I strongly agree with this conclusion, a better management of pain does not only alleviate pain and it’s symptoms but also promotes the lifestyle of the patient. I have accessed a cancer patient, before she was placed on morphine, she seemed tired of life and this was due to the pain and it’s psychological effects. I met the same patient a week later, after being placed on morphine, she sounded alive, happy and even more healthy. Pain management in cancer patient is important.

Thank you for enlightening me on the principles of PMI. From my clinical practice experience, we sometimes have patients with pain but decline pain medications due to one reason or the other, either as a result of cost, scarcity and break in supply chain of pain medications like Opoids or even because the pain doesn’t interfere with their daily life activities.
1. In these categories of patients, is their pain adequately or inadequately managed using PMI scores?
2. Does PMI take into consideration drugs prescribed recently but not yet taken by the patient?
