On 8 March, a law to strengthen the management of pediatric cancers through research, support for family carers, training of professionals and the right to be forgotten was introduced in France.
What does the law cover?
The law proposes a global strategy to improve the management of pediatric cancers. The National Cancer Institute (INCA) has been given a leading role and is responsible for rolling out a 10-year strategy.
Why is the new law important to SIP?
The new law is particularly important as Article 6 focuses on pain management. The article states that the Government will submit a report to Parliament on pain management by pediatric oncology centers. 
The report, which must be published no later than twelve months after the law is implemented (i.e. March 2020), will focus current practices for the screening and treatment of children's pain, as part of the overall care they receive. 
Additionally, the report will look into the training and education on pain made available for healthcare professionals working in pediatric oncology and treatment centers dedicated to pain in France. 
It will also examine what level of access children and adolescents with cancer have to appropriate medicines and treatments. 
Finally, the report will focus on the possibility of setting up a fourth "pain plan".
France has long been a pioneer in improving pain management. Its government notably created several successive plans to manage pain between 1998 and 2010.
After many years, this law could be an opportunity to improve the management of acute and chronic pain.
