    Qustionnaire of 5-point scale

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance score [ Time Frame: visit 3 (6 to 8 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    ECOG performance status: 0,1,2,3,4

  • Assessment of Korean Brief Pain Inventory score [ Time Frame: visit 3 (6 to 8 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Qustionnaire; K-BPI(Korean Brief Pain Inventory)

  • Investigator's global assessment score [ Time Frame: visit 3 (6 to 8 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Behavioral: Active pain management
    Active pain management will be provided by specialized pain nurse, such as telephone counseling for toxicity control and opioid dose modification.
Detailed Description:
  • The recruited patients in both group will be provided the education about pain-killer, and received medicines including opioids according to their numeric rating scale (NRS)
  • Active management group will be provided additional telephone counseling and dosage modification by specialized nurse for cancer pain.
  • The percent of pain intensity difference (%PID)

    • PID = (NRS of visit 1 - NRS of visit 3)/NRS of visit 1
