Handbook of Pain Relief in Older Adults: An Evidence-Based Approach

JAMA. 2011;305(17):1810-1811. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.568

Over the past years, intense research efforts have helped to establish an evidence-based foundation for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of pain. This development is invaluable for older adults who live with acute and chronic pain.
