Pain assessment and management for people with advanced dementia in long-term care settings.

School of Pharmacy

About the Project

Patients with advanced dementia often have complex and dynamic health statuses and unique health-care needs. Pain assessment and management in advanced and end stage dementia are challenging; in these stages of dementia, people are often unable to effectively communicate their pain, which increases the risk of under-assessment and under-treatment of pain in this vulnerable patient population. This research project will examine pain assessment and management for people with advanced dementia in long-term care settings (nursing homes). The project will also consider medication use in this population, with a focus on analgesics and medicines for symptom control. Research methods utilised will include quantitative methods of data collection and qualitative methods such as interviews and focus groups.

Funding Notes

Applicants should have a 1st or 2.1 honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. Relevant subjects include Pharmacy, Molecular Biology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biochemistry, Biological/Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry, Engineering, or a closely related discipline. Students who have a 2.2 honours degree and a Master’s degree may also be considered, but the School reserves the right to shortlist for interview only those applicants who have demonstrated high academic attainment to date.
