Abstract

The population around the world is ageing. By 2050, it is anticipated that we will see an increase in the population of adults over the age of 65 years to 36%. The potential to live longer will result in an anticipated increase in the over 80 years age group by more than three times. The types of pain seen in the older population are widespread and management can be complex.
