There are fundamental clinical implications around assessment and evaluation of pain as well as management strategies for pain that have the potential of impacting and improving client outcomes. It is these principles that have been used to develop a training module on pain and dementia with widespread application to a range of settings. This study serves to provide an overview of this process as it translates evidence of pain in people living with dementia to practice for clinicians working in the field.
