Describe how PRN pain relief be used to support individuals with dementia who may be in pain
One of the greatest challenges facing health care today is the provision of proper pain management in elderly patients suffering from both acute and chronic pain. [ The task of caring for suffering individuals is magnified when those patients are inflicted with cognitive impairments. Approximately 4 ½ million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and it is estimated that around 14 million
will have the disease by the year 2050 if a cure is not found.
