Pain Management

The Gerontological Society of America has released two new publications outlining changes in pain management for elderly patients in response to the Institute of Medicine's call for an overhaul in pain treatment. The first publication, "An Interdisciplinary Look at Advancing Pain Care, Education, and Research — Responding to the IOM's Call to Action to Improve Pain Management," provides an overview of needs for care, education and research and lays out a blueprint for transforming pain care.

The second publication, "An Interdisciplinary Look at Labeling Changes for Acetaminophen and the Implications for Patient Care," provides information on the acetaminophen labeling changes, implications for patient care and important steps that clinicians can take when educating patients.
