Introducing PainChek® to our residents
Yvonne Ayre, General Manager at Regents Garden, talks about the accuracy of pain diagnosis through the PainChek® assessments – which in turn enables a more accurate treatment plan:
“Having the evidence to support a pain diagnosis has often proved difficult when caring for people with dementia. Pain and behaviour management often go hand in hand and PainChek® has provided us with a simple but effective tool to diagnose that a person has pain and effectively manage that pain.”
“As a result, we now have a number of documented cases of reduced use of behaviour medications (such as antipsychotics) and an improvement in the quality of life for the residents.”
“We see the PainChek® application as a valuable addition to our pain management system. The training and support from the staff at PainChek® has been first class and the registered nurses at Regents Garden have embraced this tool and have nothing but praise for the results that we are finding.”
