As America’s population ages, healthcare systems face the daunting work of caring for our oldest adults, a majority of whom experience multiple concurrent diseases or conditions, including chronic pain.
- For many older Americans, coping with these multiple health conditions and navigating the complexities of the healthcare system can be overwhelming.
