Pain is a common phenomenon which we are all likely to experience. For a person with dementia, however, communicating the experience of pain in order to receive holistic assessment, accurate recognition of the source of distress, and adequate pain relief, can be a difficult journey.
Participants will learn how to recognise signs of distress and the impact of pain for people with dementia. Assessment scales and person-centred strategies for managing pain will be explored which can be taken back by participants to make real changes in their practice environments.
