Abstract:
Accurate measurement of the chronic pain experience is imperative for evaluation of successful pain management. The majority of pain measures are related to acute pain, and assess the single dimension of intensity. Chronic pain tends to be persistent with fluctuating intensity. Assessment of pain in older adults presents unique problems. They often report pain differently from younger patients due to physiologic and psychological changes, as well as cultural influences. The purpose of this paper is to identify the components of assessment of chronic pain and to discuss the use of specific pain-related measures with older adults. Objectives: 1. Identify the components of pain assessment for the older adult. 2. Discuss the use of specific pain-related measures with older adults.
