Suffering in Silence: Pain in Dementia
Wednesday 23rd August 2017, 1.00pm-5.00pm
Pain in an older person with dementia can be difficult to identify and treat. Dementia limits a person’s ability to communicate the pain they experience and many ‘suffer in silence’. In the last decade we have seen an explosion of research in this field and there are now a number of promising assessment tools and management strategies.
At this half-day evidence-based workshop you will learn:
- The prevalence and complexity of pain and dementia
- Strategies, tools and approaches to identify and assess pain in people with dementia
- How to treat and manage pain in people with dementia.
Three leading experts in the field of pain research will present: Professor Stephen Gibson, Associate Professor Benny Katz and Dr Steven Savvas.
Who should attend:
- Healthcare providers
- Allied health, nursing, clinical and medical staff
- Researchers and academics.
Cost: $240 (incl. GST) per person
- Includes afternoon tea and all workshop materials
- 10% discount for early bird registrations.
