AGE-WELL & APPTA Policy Rounds: Pain in Long-Term Care Settings: Applications of mHealth Technology and Policy Implications

February 27, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST

Speaker: Vivian Tran, AGE-WELL HQP, Ph.D. Student, Department of Psychology, University of Regina 

 Description: Although mHealth technologies are widely accessible, there is limited uptake in healthcare settings. Preventable health conditions, such as pain, have long-term implications at the individual, system, and economic levels. The presentation will focus on new mHealth technology, such as the PACSLAC-II app, to assist in the early detection of pain. Key policy recommendations including regulatory frameworks and infrastructure considerations will be discussed.
