Consider a resident in your care who is nearing the end of life - their wish is to spend their remaining time engaging with friends and family, but their pain management regime means that they're usually sedated and asleep when they have visitors. No-one has asked them what their goals for their treatment are. Join Dale Long for a frank look at how we manage pain in older adults, especially toward end of life, and how we can improve this process and improve our resident's quality of life.
