Pain management presents unique challenges in aged care regarding assessment, medication management and access to non-pharmacological, evidence based treatment options. The aged care patient may have multiple physical, psychological and social/contextual morbidities increasing the complexity of providing evidence-based pain care. This interactive workshop will discuss the best practice of pain management in the aged with adherence to the Aged Care Quality Standards Framework as well as best practice recommendations from various therapeutic frameworks e.g. RACGP, Palliative Care, National Prescribing Service. Further, this interactive workshop will draw on the expertise of the audience, instigating multi-disciplinary discussions to identify current barriers and a road map in going forward.
