Quality Improvement - Chronic Pain Management in Residential Aged Care

Image of Medications

Our team are currently undertaking a quality improvement project aimed at improving chronic pain management for our patients in residential aged care. This complex condition is challenging to manage and requires effective collaboration and expertise from multiple health care professionals. This project is designed to improve communication and therefore collaboration between the Prestantia Health team as well as the nursing and care teams across Canberra’s aged care homes. Our team are developing a multi-disciplinary care plan approach to improve documentation and communication of evidence-based chronic pain monitoring and management plans and between members of the care teams. The intended outcome of this quality improvement project is to strengthen collaboration between care providers and improve control of chronic pain symptoms for our patients.
