About this item

A high percentage of patients with dementia experience debilitating pain. Untreated, it can result in mental and physical impairment; a higher frequency of neuropsychiatric symptoms such as agitation, depression, and sleep problems; and adverse events such as falls, hallucination, and even death. With the help of Pain in Dementia, you can learn new ways to give these patients a better quality of life! A multidisciplinary team of leading experts navigates the complex clinical challenges associated with pain among these patients.  They identify the sources of pain, even in patients who have trouble communicating; and recommend the most effective pain treatment options.

Key Features

  • Avoid inappropriate use of pain medication through coverage of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic management options, including exercise and physical therapy, psychological approaches, placebo analgesia, and palliative care.
