The meeting will explore the complexities of chronic, non-malignant pain in older people, drawing on expertise from medicine, nursing and psychology to explain why pain is different in older people, and why different approaches to treatment are needed.
Chronic, non-malignant pain is common, poorly understood and too often badly managed. This meeting will allow practitioners to consider the causes and consequences of chronic, non-malignant pain and to discuss guideline implementation with guideline authors. The meeting will be multi-disciplinary, with presentations from nursing, psychology and medicine.
The objectives of the meeting are:
- To understand the origins and consequences of non-malignant pain in older people
- To learn the extent of current guidelines on managing non-malignant pain
- To appreciate the range of non-pharmacological management options for non-malignant pain
- First prize: Best Oral Presentation £100
