The detection and management of pain in patients with dementia in acute care settings: development of a decision tool

Dementia is a broad term comprising a number of chronic neurodegenerative syndromes. The number of sufferers is increasing and more are being hospitalised. It is difficult for hospital staff to determine accurately the causes of distress in people with dementia. This study proposes to develop tools to help staff in hospital settings recognise when people with dementia are in pain and to give guidance on effective treatment. The team plans to identify the tools that already exist and also to explore how hospital staff currently identify, record and manage the pain of patients with dementia. It also intends to examine how carers can be more involved in the pain identification process.
