“Explore pain assessment considerations in the elderly”
With the world ageing at a rapid rate, pain and pain symptoms increase and therefore so does the complexity when assessing geriatric patients for pain.

In this session you will:
- Gain an understanding of pain in the elderly
- Explore pain assessment considerations in the elderly
