Cancer pain is undertreated internationally. The Australian Cancer Pain guideline was launched at COSA in 2013. Since then, National Breast Cancer Foundation has funded a national cluster randomised controlled trial to implement the guidelines in cancer centres, enabling evaluation of the translation of evidence to practice. The latest evidence informing the guidelines will be reviewed and the implementation strategies described.
