Pain Assessment in Older Adults

Chronic pain is often a concern for older adults. Using a variety of assessment tools, this DVD will help caregivers to evaluate the presence and severity of pain, whether the patient is able to verbalize it or not. This DVD demonstrates how to assess for pain in older adults, using these four tools: the Faces Pain Scale, the Verbal Descriptor Scale, the Numeric Rating Scale, and the Pain Assessment in Advanced Dementia Scale. The DVD goes further to document how to assess and re-evaluate the effectiveness of the applied interventions, as needed. (Part of a 28-DVD training series.)
