Abstract

Although the empiric base is still limited when providing clear directionsfor pain assessment and management in older adults, it is possible to identify recommendations for guiding practice based on consensus and a developing scientific base to support best practice activities. A brief overview ofthe epidemiology and consequences of pain is offered, followed by a summary of issues and approaches relevant to pain assessment in older adults. Cohort-specific recommendations for comprehensive pain assessment and measurement based on current evidence are then addressed, including strategies for assessment of pain in cognitively impaired older adults.
