This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 2114, "Pain and Pacing Daily Activities". Pain lowers your body’s energy resources. Energy management is a way to manage your body’s energy levels. It includes different ways of using and saving energy so that you do not make your pain worse or cause a flare-up. It helps you do important activities by lowering the amount of energy your body uses. People with chronic pain may have activity styles that increase their pain. These activity styles are known as: boom-bust, pain as your guide, and combination approach. This pamphlet explains how you can save your energy. Techniques listed include pacing, working within your baseline, breaking down activities into smaller parts, and do-rest-do.

Abstract
Managing Cancer Breakthrough Pain is a comprehensive review of cancer breakthrough pain (cBTP) and rapid-onset opioids (ROO), the only treatment approved for cBTP episodes.
