Do you work identifying, assessing and managing pain for older patients with complex medical needs?
Presented by the RCN Pain and Palliative Care Forum and the RCN Older Persons Forum the workshop will explore common causes of pain in older people and provide practical guidance on assessment and ongoing management.
By the end of the workshop attendees will have an awareness of the prevalence of pain and the impact that unrelieved pain can have on function in older people. Attendees will gain an understanding of the physiology, expression and assessment of pain, and the importance of assessing and documenting the impact of any interventions within care records. The workshop will also showcase non-pharmacological and discuss pharmacological treatments and recent evidence on the use of validated assessment tools for specific patient populations.
We would encourage professionals working with older people and particularly members of the nursing team working in primary care, residential and nursing home settings providing care.
20 Cavendish Square is located behind John Lewis, Oxford Street.
