Pain Management in the Older Adults


Internationally and in Singapore, prevalence of chronic and persistent pain in older adults above 65 years old is  1 in 5. Pain in the older adults is associated with significant suffering, disability, social isolation, and greater costs and burden to health care systems.


Pain in the older adults is multifaceted and the approach to management of pain in older adults needs to be coordinated and comprehensive. Multi-disciplinary approach incorporating pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions is efficacious but is underused as older adults with pain are under-represented, resulting in these older adults being offered fewer treatment options.


This workshop aims to equip the Allied Health Professionals and Pharmacists with knowledge and awareness of a multi-disciplinary approach to pain management in the older adults.
