          Abstract

          Many patients with cancer are at risk of experiencing neuropathic pain. This type of pain is complex and therefore requires complex assessment with a focus on impact on quality-of-life issues such as sleep and depression. Nurses are well placed to identify patients with possible signs and symptoms of neuropathic pain and so it is important for nurses to understand neuropathic pain and its manifestation, impact on quality of life, and management. Part 1 of this paper provides an overview of neuropathic cancer pain incidence, manifestation, and assessment; part 2 will address management.
