Suffering in Silence: Pain in Dementia

Pain in an older person with dementia can be difficult to identify and treat. Dementia limits a person’s ability to communicate the pain they experience and many ‘suffer in silence’. In the last decade we have seen an explosion of research in this field and there are now a number of promising assessment tools and management strategies.

At this half-day evidence-based workshop you will learn:

  • The prevalence and complexity of pain and dementia
  • Strategies, tools and approaches to identify and assess pain in people with dementia
  • How to treat and manage pain in people with dementia.
