Abstract

This is the second of a two-part series, which highlights issues and strategies related to pain assessment in older adults and current problems of pain management in older adults and analgesic regimens pertinent to this population. The complexities of assessing pain in older adults and assessment techniques for accomplishing a careful evaluation of pain were presented in the first part of this series, which was published in the January issue of the Journal of Gerontological Nursing (Vol. 28, No. 1). This article addresses issues and strategies related to management of pain, particularly analgesic use, in this challenging population.
