Key points

  • Effective pain management begins with a thorough pain assessment encompassing all aspects of pain and includes function and quality of life, regardless of the age of the sufferer.
  • Management depends upon the type of pain (acute, chronic, or cancer).
  • Pharmacological management should take into account co-morbidities and potential adverse effects.
  • The analgesic ladder should be used for all types of pain with adjuvant drugs where appropriate.
  • Complementary therapies can be used with care in the older population.
  • Cognitive-behavioural therapy needs more research for use in the older population, but older adults can do well with this approach.
  • Guidelines exist for pain management in the older population.
