UMS member Professor Peacock and UMS associate member Dr Sauzet publish in BJA

Professor Peacock and Dr Sauzet, along with colleagues, were published in the British Journal of Anaesthesia, in a study from the NIHR RfPB-funded RCT in collaboration with the Royal Marsden Hospital.

The study titled ‘Routine screening for pain combined with a pain treatment protocol in head and neck cancer: a randomised controlled trial ‘compared the effectiveness and cost of a pain screening and treatment program, with usual care in head and neck cancer patients with significant pain.’

The authors concluded that ‘there was no difference in the Pain Severity Index between the two groups. However there were significant improvements in the intervention group in patient satisfaction and PMI.’
