Patient was 58 year old female with severe uterus cancer pain who refused to take the oral morphine in hospital because doctor should be hesitated to discharged patient whose pain is particularly difficult to manage in home. A few days later, she returned back home with her family irritably and recovered from hallucination by morphine-intake in home. The oral morphine is the prepared route of analgesic administration in home care. When patient can not take medications orally, continuous intravenous infusion provides the most consistent level of analgesia. In future, transdermal route offers a practical alternative in the hospice and home.
