||Chronic noncancer pain affects many individuals with cancer, but few receive evidence-based treatments from their healthcare providers. Little is known about effective knowledge translation (KT) strategies for disseminating effective treatments. The researchers conducted a systematic review of the existing literature, and created a narrative synthesis of the results. They found that interactive education for healthcare professionals was related to improved functioning and knowledge about pain in patients. These interventions had inconsistent effects on other variables. There was little evidence to support the effectiveness of structural changes, quality improvement processes or coordination of care.
