Pain

Geriatric Pain Measure - GPM

The GPM is a self administered questionnaire that helps to identify how pain and discomfort is affecting the older adult’s ability to carry out and enjoy his or her daily activities. The goal is to provide the older adult’s medical team with information so that any needed pain management interventions can be provided as persistent pain can lead to a cascade of other health problems.
