Access from EThOS:
Pain in cognitively impaired elderly people (CIEP) is difficult to identify and often goes unrecognized. Observational Pain Tools (OPTs) are available, but evidence of their validity is limited. This study aimed to ascertain the psychometric properties of five OPTs (CNPI, PAINAD, Abbey PS, PACSLAC and DS-DAT). These OPTs, 2 self-reported pain scales (VRS and FACES PS) and 2 proxy-reported pain scales (VRS and FACES PS) were compared in the assessment of osteoarthritic pain (OA) among CIEP.
