Pain Management at the End of Life: Bridging the Gap Between Knowledge and Practice (DVD) addresses barriers to pain management--society’s approach, historical views, and attitudes and biases, as well as ways to improve pain management at the end of life.
The book (ISBN: 978-1-893349-07-0) by the same title includes detailed chapters on pain assessment, pharmacotherapy, approaches to pain management at the end of life, the hospice team approach to pain management, and treating pain in children and adults with cognitive impairment.
Pain Management at the End of Life: Bridging the Gap Between Knowledge and Practice is a 1 hour, 9 minute panel discussion by leading authorities moderated by Frank Sesno. This DVD program, recorded in March 2007, includes interviews that supplement the discussion. The expert panel discusses how to understand the barriers to pain control, how to assess pain at the end of life, how to improve pain management, and the shared responsibility of managing pain.
