There is a lack of information on the management of pain in cancer patients in Namibia. For this reason a survey was done to determine the pain experience of cancer patients during hospitalisation and their evaluation of the treatment thereof by nurses

Weens ‘n gebrek aan inligting oor die hantering van pyn by pasiente met kanker, is 'n opname gedoen na die pyn belewenis van pasiente met karsinoom tydens hospitalisasie.
