"The older population is on the increase, and we know there is a high incidence of pain in this group. But they are not a homogenous group and so we to work with older adults to develop self-management strategies that are acceptable to them."

Prof. Pat Schofield
Deputy Dean Research and Income Generation
Anglia Ruskin University

My work is primarily in the field of nursing research. But I have led a number of multidisciplinary cross University, cross Healthcare sector programmes of research into various aspects of pain and ageing or dementia.

I am currently involved in three major programme of research around pain in older adults. The first is a cross council programme of research under the Lifelong Health & Well Being banner which is Engaging with Older Adults in Designing and Developing Strategies for the Self Management of Chronic Pain (EOPIC) and the second project is New technologies to support older people at home: maximising personal and social interaction funded by dot.rural and the third project is an EU funded programme Pain Assessment in Patients with Impaired Cognition, especially Dementia. I have just completed a local study funded by HIEC looking at education of staff to improve the management of pain in adults with dementia within an acute trust. I have over 150 books and publications in the area.
