Enhancing the Management of Neuropathic Pain in the Long-Term Care Setting toolkit was created by the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL) and is hosted on the AHRQ Innovations Exchange. It was derived to assist administrators and clinicians to better manage persistent or neuropathic pain in older adults who reside in long-term care settings.
The toolkit has outlined a three step process to manage pain that includes: setting goals; educating and training staff on best practices and administering a pain reassessment. All three steps are described in detail in the toolkit, and provided alongside data collection sheets and calculation measurements.
