Abstract
Due to the high prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders, cancer, and other medical conditions in elderly patients, pain is a significant concern for this age group and their caregivers. Despite the frequent experience of pain in this population, few assessment and management techniques have been developed and tested to treat pain in the elderly. To provide effective pain relief, medical-surgical nurses must know how to adapt assessment and management techniques for elderly patients.
