Pain Management in Dementia
About this course
Research and studies have told us that 85% of people living with dementia in care homes are at risk of experiencing unrecognised and unmanaged pain. This often means that pain is missed, and therefore unmanaged. In this course we will explore the reasons as to this may be happening, as well as some of the difficulties and barriers around pain assessing. This course also explores different ways a person living with dementia may communicate they are pain, for example through behaviour or non-verbal communication.
