Frailty is associated with increased vulnerability to stressors such as pain and its treatments. The barriers in people with cognitive impairment extend just beyond memory loss and an inability to communicate or comprehend. They have variable expressions presenting as behavioural changes, impaired cognition to process the stimuli, altered emotional state and coping mechanisms, impact of the associated co-morbidities, and the resulting changes in their function and psycho-social context. The challenges in optimal management extend from difficulties in identification, assessment, treatment and monitoring.
The self- reporting screening tools and applications of standard treatments are often ineffective in more advanced stages of cognitive impairment. This often leads to under-treatment or even inappropriate use of therapies. In this session, Dr. Savvas will present about the subjective 'pain experience' for people with neurocognitive dysfunction.
Anand will speak about the challenges and approaches to the identification and assessment of pain. Topical Concurrent Session 2F: Photobiomodulation - a novel non-drug treatment for pain using light as either laser or LEDs, to modulate pain. What is the evidence and what are the mechanisms? Photobiomodulation PBM is a novel non-drug treatment for pain. It has been used clinically since laser was "invented" in though predicted by Einstein in Clinical evidence has been steadily growing as has an understanding of the mechanisms for analgesic effects.
Light modulates pain via several mechanisms. The multidimensional effects of PBM are unique.
The RACGP has called for funding and research into non-pharmacological treatments for pain, given the current opioid epidemic and limited efficacy and side effects of available drugs. PBM is currently used in practice and should provide an adjunctive treatment to reduce the burden of pain.

The experience of ourselves and of the world is fundamentally a perceptual manifestation. Sensory input is shaped by knowledge and experience, prior to conscious awareness. Current knowledge suggests that whether or not something hurts depends not only on nociception, but numerous multimodal and diverse factors. As such, manipulating perception of a situation, the body, or the environment, provides a novel way to understand and treat pain.
Dr Tasha Stanton UniSA will present findings from mediated reality showing that perceived features of the body can modulate pain.
Dr Felicity Braithwaite Flinders will present data on the use of placebo paradigms to understand how information can blind individuals to what is a normally painful treatment. Topical Concurrent Session 3B: Less than satisfactory communications about pain? The space between healthcare professionals and patients in pain care can vary enormously, even between participants who share a common language and culture.

Healthcare encounters increasingly involve crossing language and culture boundaries. Not infrequently the interaction does not achieve the shared understanding necessary for effective therapeutic relationships, especially with vulnerable and distressed patients. Because pain is an inherently subjective experience, patients with pain have to rely on expressive language in order to convey their experience and solicit assistance from healthcare providers. It is therefore vital to understand how patients use pain language in order to optimise healthcare.

Data from a recent study will be presented highlighting the relationships between pain language and standardised measures of mood and pain-related disability. Furthermore, health professionals often forget they use a specialised language that is foreign to those in their care. Participants will be given guidance and an opportunity to practise their translation skills. The session will address the contribution of enhanced expertise in language and cultural competence and understanding to better communication about pain and the need for sophisticated training.
Claire Ashton-James The University of Sydney discuss new research that highlights the scope and diversity of research being conducted within this rapidly emerging field. First, Professor Tor Wager University of Colorado, Boulder, USA will begin by explaining the impact of social cues on pain experience and physiology from a neuroscientific perspective. That's almost the entire population of Daytona Beach, Sessions noted. But Sessions, veering away from his prepared remarks, also made an example of Gen.
John Kelly, the president's chief of staff, whom he said refused opioids after a minor surgery. The remarks followed similar statements Sessions made Tuesday night at a Heritage Foundation event marking the birthday of President Ronald Reagan. Sessions suggested addictions to heroin and other serious drugs start more often with marijuana than opioid prescriptions, according to the online news magazine The Week. I think I last remember seeing a bottle with that name in my grandma's medicine cabinet, circa Bufferin is an aspirin brand that includes an antacid to reduce stomach upset. Aspirin is most commonly used to treat minor pain such as toothaches or headaches.
In his prepared speech, Sessions took a sobering tone in describing the toll of opioids.

He mentioned overdose cases from the Middle District of Florida, the federal judicial territory that includes 35 counties from Naples to Jacksonville. Among those he pointed to was year-old Katie Golden, a Plant High School senior who last year died of a heroin overdose. They included the case of Felix Mejia-Lagunas, a California man whom prosecutors described as the top-ranking member in the United States of a Mexican drug trafficking organization.
He shipped heroin to Florida, where it was distributed on the streets of Orlando and Tampa. Mejia-Lagunas was sentenced in December to 27 years in prison.
