Title : Biopsycosocial model for pain management in post cancer therapy patients- a evaluation study


Oncological professionals have spent the last 20 years attempting to close gaps in the psychosocial care of cancer survivors, and have identified the use of biopsychosocial assessment tools as valuable means of improving the coordination of integrated treatment efforts between medical and mental healthcare providers. Biopsychosocial assessment tools aim to identify significant leverage points in treatment planning for biological, social, and psychological determinants of health. Biopsychosocial models are particularly appropriate for cancer survivors, as the closely intertwined biomedical and psychosocial impacts of cancer may not be appropriately understood if singularly assessed. Measures of quality of life (QoL) remain the most widely used biopsychosocial assessment tools in cancer care Theoretically, QoL is a concept closely associated with well-being and wellness and is intended to be a holistic and subjective construct.
The biopsychosocial model is a helpful way to comprehensively approach the conceptualization and treatment of pain in cancer patients at all stages of the disease process. We currently have an established base of research on the importance of the biopsychosocial model in cancer pain. Our ability to treat patients with cancer pain effectively will improve as we gain a better understanding of which treatments work for which patients. This study assesses the importance of integrating the biopsychosocial model for cancer patients. Here biological components are managed by low-level lasers and psychosocial aspects through the palliative care holistic approach by the model are considered for the outcome. Post-oral cancer-treated patients are assessed for biological, and psychological factors which are the main contributors to pain. Through the model, we have understood various pain-causing agents and tried to manage them. The pain was considered as a parameter for assessment with clinical assessment. Pain values (vas) are subjected to statistical analysis and results are interpreted for the conclusion.
