When teaching a 65-year-old patient to use a pain scale, a pain management nurse anticipates that:
  •    Additional time is needed for the patient to process the information.
  •    Older adults are unable to use pain scales reliably.
  •    The Pain Assessment in Advanced Dementia Scale is appropriate for the patient.
  •    The patients family is included in the education sessions.
