Tapentadol has already been studied in adults. This study is needed to find out if tapentadol works and is safe to use in children and adolescents with long-term pain. During the first 2 weeks of the study (Part 1), participants will be given either tapentadol or morphine prolonged-release tablets. Assignment will be done randomly (like tossing a coin). The participant and the caregiver will know which medication they are taking. The primary endpoint is based on data collected in Part 1 of this trial. If eligible and willing, participants from Part 1 can enter a 12 month follow-up period (Part 2). In Part 2 of this trial participants will be treated with tapentadol prolonged release tablets or with the standard of care (observation arm).
