Cover image for lecture: Effective Pain Management in Older Adults

Lecture Overview

Consider a resident in your care who is nearing the end of life - their wish is to spend their remaining time engaging with friends and family, but their pain management regime means that they're usually sedated and asleep when they have visitors. No-one has asked them what their goals for their treatment are. Join Dale Long for a frank look at how we manage pain in older adults, especially toward end of life, and how we can improve this process and improve our resident's quality of life.

This online lecture is very relevant to my job as an RN working in an aged care where most of the residents are experiencing pain . This topic might be short but very specific and was easily understood.
