International conference: Nursing home patients with dementia suffer needlessly
The 7th International Congress of Pain in Dementia took place in Bergen 24th to 25th of April. COST-Action TD 1005 is a multidisciplinary group of international researchers from 16 European countries, Australia and USA, with focus on pain in dementia, palliative care, psychometric properties, laboratory pain research, clinical studies, and implementation. Since 2011, it has been the goal to improve pain recognition and management and to develop an international agreed tool to assess pain in people with dementia.
The Bergen congress team, mainly with members from the Centre for Elderly and Nursing Home Medicine (SEFAS), organized the conference, which were highly successful. Read more about the conference and the news coverage here.
