Dementia Training Australia recognizes the considerable detrimental effects that undertreated pain may have on people living with dementia, and supports the widespread use of validated pain assessments (such as the Abbey Pain Scale and the PainChek® app) in dementia care.

As with any clinical assessment tool, quality support and training is required to ensure effective use at the point of care. With this objective in mind, PainChek and DTA have collaborated to develop this innovative eLearning course to train all members of the aged care workforce to use the PainChek app appropriately, ensuring optimal outcomes are achieved for people living with dementia.

Underpinned by DTA’s knowledge translation framework, the course has been built in SmartSparrow®, an advanced eLearning platform that utilises adaptive learning to provide a rich, interactive user experience.
