Discovering the Future
We are building a global, multi-disciplinary workforce that is changing how cancer pain is treated. To this end, CPRC is becoming the world leader in advancing multi-modal cancer pain intervention.
In December 2012, a group of physicians with an interest in the treatment of cancer pain, with representation from multiple specialties met in Las Vegas, Nevada under the leadership of Dr. Bill Rosenberg. The physicians in attendance identified a need for the formation of an interdisciplinary group to improve the care of patients suffering from cancer-related pain. Each specialty, from Medical and Radiation Oncology to Neurosurgery and Physiatry, have important roles in the treatment of cancer patients.
We are medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, physiatrists, anesthesiologists, palliative care doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and neurosurgeons from such institutions that include:
- University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
