Pain Management

The Pain Management Program

Pain is a complex, subjective, and unpleasant sensation that is very common with the elderly. Chronic pain can lead to social isolation, depression, polypharmacy, decreased functional status, and deconditioning.

As such, pain management is a critical aspect of geriatric care. The elderly are generally at increased risk of adverse effects from drug interactions due to the use of analgesics and other pain killing medications. As a result non-drug treatments that reduce pain are of particular importance. Patient and caregiver education and active patient/caregiver involvement can help reduce pain and improve quality of life of the patient.
