TI - Pain management at home. [Review]

AB - The management of chronic pain should be a priority in geriatric home care. Pain is a common

problem that has tremendous potential to influence the physical function and quality of life of elderly people

during their remaining years. The experience of pain and its management at home are not analogous to

institutional settings. Family and caregivers have important influences on pain management and may require

education and support for the long-term management of chronic pain patients. Existing pain management

strategies should be tailored to meet the special needs of geriatric patients and be sensitive to caregiver

concerns. Implications, indications, and applications for high-tech pain management strategies need to be

clarified for the management of older people at home. [References: 27]
