This course was written by Robin A. Bleier, RN, HCRM-FACDONA, Clinical Risk Operational Consultant & Principal of RB Health Partners, Inc. As a long-term care professional, you are charged with seeking risk factors for your patients. Pain is one of the most important risk factors to be assessed and managed to bring the best possible quality of life to your residents. This course will help you understand pain. We’ll begin by looking at what pain is, how it affects residents, and how signs and symptoms reveal its presence. We’ll turn to more formal assessment frameworks, and see how those can be used for pain assessment. And finally, we’ll look at how pain is managed, with special attention to your role as direct caregiver.
