Intervene: Pain care for older people and people with dementia 2nd edition
A new, extensively updated edition of Intervene: Pain care for older people and people with dementia is now available from expert authors Dr William McClean and Associate Professor Colm Cunningham.
Pain which is mismanaged or poorly understood is a major issue in the care of older people and people with dementia. Too often pain is not recognised as a factor affecting an older person's quality of life, or dismissed lightly if it is. The situation is even more concerning for people with dementia, especially those who can no longer speak about their pain needs.
With a rapidly ageing population and growing prevalence of dementia, it has never been more important to ensure all those who care for older people and people with dementia are enabled to recognise pain and manage it well.
Which is why authors William McClean and Colm Cunningham have updated their popular pain resource, Intervene: Pain care for older people and people with dementia. For 20 years they have worked together to improve pain care for older people and continue to do so through this practice guide, which be used individually or in group settings.
"An immensely practical and useful book that will be an invaluable resource for those caring for older people living with pain."
Professor Philip Siddall
