Community pharmacists and people with dementia: a cross-sectional survey exploring experiences, attitudes, and knowledge of pain and its management

Barry et al. (2013) examine the knowledge and experience of community pharmacists in managing pain in people with dementia.  They found that community pharmacists had a positive person-centred attitude towards people with dementia, a good knowledge of the use of anti-psychotic medications but were uncertain about the difficulties people in the later stages of dementia may have with swallowing and were unsure about pain assessment and management.
