Meet the MACPT group

The MACPT group is formed of multi-professional cancer pain management specialists from across Europe who recognised that pain management remains a challenge, despite advances in cancer treatments, people living longer, and a greater availability of supportive care.

They also identified that little is published that addresses pain in advanced cancer that is both clinically applicable and takes a truly holistic person-focused approach.

Drawing on their expertise and current best practice guidelines, the MACPT group developed the guidance and accompanying pain conversation tool specifically for the management of pain in the advanced cancer setting.
