August Workshop 2017

Suffering in Silence: Pain in Dementia 

Wednesday 23rd August 2017, 1.00pm-5.00pm

Pain in an older person with dementia can be difficult to identify and treat. Dementia limits a person’s ability to communicate the pain they experience and many ‘suffer in silence’. In the last decade we have seen an explosion of research in this field and there are now a number of promising assessment tools and management strategies.

At this half-day evidence-based workshop you will learn:

  • The prevalence and complexity of pain and dementia
  • Strategies, tools and approaches to identify and assess pain in people with dementia
  • How to treat and manage pain in people with dementia.

Three leading experts in the field of pain research will present: Professor Stephen Gibson, Associate Professor Benny Katz and Dr Steven Savvas.

Who should attend:

  • Healthcare providers
  • Allied health, nursing, clinical and medical staff
  • Researchers and academics.

Cost: $240 (incl. GST) per person

  • Includes afternoon tea and all workshop materials
  • 10% discount for early bird registrations.
