Although pain is common in older populations, older adults are often undertreated for it. This is especially challenging for those with serious dementia, who live in nursing homes and cannot report their pain because of cognitive impairments.
Webinar participants will:
• Explore the development of an affordable technology that will facilitate regular pain assessment with minimal resources
• Learn about an inexpensive vision-based sensor that can be easily implemented in most long-term care facilities
• Discover how an automated pain detection system can assist health care staff with pain assessment
