Description: Article titled, "Doctor's Duty to Ease Pain At Issue in California Lawsuit" by Susan Okiewas published on the Washington Post web site on May 7, 2001. The article gives the background on one of the first lawsuits against a physician for the undertreatment of pain. The case, originating in California, involves a patient's family suing a doctor (following the patient's death) claiming that the prescribed drugs were not powerful enough to reduce the patient's pain and reflected the growing influence of patients and advocacy groups to demand better pain management.
