Pain is often not recognized, nor treated and she will discuss the best practices in recognizing pain in a patient who may be unable to express that they are in pain. She will review the topic from a medical perspective as she speaks to physicians and other elder care professionals who may be unaware of this common problem. This presentation is generally directed toward physicians and elder care professionals, but is open to anyone interested in this topic.
