Free online pain course for health professionals

Created  12th December 2018

A new online course will train aged care staff to recognise pain in those who can’t always communicate for themselves.

Dementia Training Australia (DTA) has partnered with creators of the PainChek® app to develop the course. The Australian Government funds DTA to provide dementia education and training across Australia.

The 1.5 hour course covers three modules:

  • behaviours of pain

  • undertaking pain assessments with the app

  • using the app confidently and competently.

Further information is available on the DTA website, including a link to the course.
