ACEP Frontline episodes are free and on demand. In this episode recorded at ACEP16, Dr. Stanton and Dr. LaPietra discuss how to deal with pain management in the elderly when they present in the Emergency Department. Dr. LaPietra, a founder of ACEP’s new Pain Management Section, discusses some of the special risks you face when prescribing for pain. She also discusses alternatives and techniques to solving pain issues in this population.
By Alexis LaPietra, DO | April 12, 2016Emergency medicine pain management can be painful, but it doesn’t have to be. I recently finished a year-long emergency medicine–focused pain management fellowship, the first of its kind. I had the privilege of working with a variety of subspecialties in an effort to gain their perspectives on acute and chronic pain management.
