Information on public consultation
Public consultation dates
These guidelines were opened for initial public comment from 26th November 2012 until 11th January 2013.
Comments on the draft were considered by the Working Group for revision and responses posted on the Wiki.
The revised guideline was launched at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Clinical Oncological Society (COSA) in Adelaide in November 2013.
Although initial public consultation has ended, users are invited to submit comments and notifications of new evidence on an ongoing basis for the Working Group to consider including in guideline updates.
How submit comments
Step 1: Create a user account
Before you comment, please create a user account by completing the simple registration form. You will then be automatically logged in and directed back to this content page.
Creating a user account will enable your comments to be contextualised by your role, affiliation and geographic location, and you will also receive alerts when any replies to your comments are posted.
If you wish, you can omit this step and comment anonymously. However, this means that we won't be able to notify you of responses to your comments.
Browse and review the Cancer pain guideline content.
Click the blue buttons underneath each guideline content section that you would like to comment on.
If you have comments on the language and terminology of the guidelines please provide suggested replacement text.
The Working Group would also appreciate suggestions for clinical questions that users feel are priorities for future systematic reviews or research.
If you would like to notify us of further/newly published evidence, please use the blue button. Please provide appropriate citations to support your suggestion.
How we will respond to comments:
Any minor suggested changes to the guidelines (e.g. correcting a typographical error) may be made immediately.
All relevant comments will be reviewed by the guideline Working Party.
Comments and the Working Party’s responses will be published on this Wiki.
We reserve the right to summarise and edit comments received during consultation or not to publish them at all where, in reasonable opinion, the comments are voluminous or publication would be unlawful or otherwise inappropriate.
We are unable to accept:
Defamatory, disrespectful or otherwise inappropriate comments. Comments will be routinely screened, and inappropriate comments removed.

Confidential information or personal medical information about yourself or another person from which your or the other person’s identity could be ascertained.
