With Martha Spencer, MD, FRCPC, Division of Geriatric Medicine, Providence Health Care

Chronic pain is very common in older adults and is often under-recognized and under-treated. Pain often co-exists with other geriatric syndromes such as multimorbidity, polypharmacy and falls, and can have a very significant effect on function and quality of life. Treatment of pain in the elderly is complex, as multiple other variables must be considered, including the patient’s cognition, medical issues and medications. This webinar will give practitioners some practical tools to help them in the recognition and treatment of pain in the geriatric population.
