The inaugural webinar of this new series will provide an overview of the complex issues involved in achieving equity in cancer pain management, and it will highlight the importance of multilevel approaches to address these inequities.

Three experts will address barriers to equitable delivery of cancer care, including institutional and structural inequities, race-related attitudes in patient-clinician interactions, and clinical care guidelines that inform cancer pain evaluation and management.
