Pain in Dementia

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.
