Elderly patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain often receive inadequate medical treatment. A recent Polish study suggests that this situation does not change until patients are referred to specialised pain clinics. "Prior to referral, the patients receive systemic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) all too often and opioids all too rarely. Yet the opioid buprenorphine, for instance, is a highly effective drug for combatting pronounced pain and is just as safe used on elderly patients as on younger ones," said study author Dr Magdalena Kocot-Kepska from the Collegium Medicum of Jagiellonian University in Krakow (Poland) at a symposium staged in Dubrovnik by the European Pain Federation EFIC. The event is focused on the subject acute and chronic joint pain. [more]
