Pain and Suffering in the Elderly
This workbook is designed to give you a basic introduction to the management of pain in older people. It explores the size and nature of the problem, outlines some practical assessment and management approaches, and, finally, aims to help you think about the pacticular issues in your own area of practice.
The book is not designed to make you an expert in pain management but to increase your awareness of the complexity of the pain experience when you are working with older adults and to help you to understand the need for a creative and innnovative approach to dealing with the person in your care who may be in pain.
The Skills for Care Workbooks are self-directed study workbooks that will appeal to everyone with a health and social care interest. They can be used as stand-alone modules or part of an assessment, or as part of a more format training programme at a college or other institution. They have been designed to be very flexible.
Single copies of the book can be ordered through this site; for multiple copies, please contact Medipex at email@example.com
