Abstract

By 2050, the number of older persons across the globe will exceed the number of younger people for the first time in history. Chronic conditions, especially pain, will rise in prevalence as the population ages. Controlling pain in this unique subset of the population demands careful attention to pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic factors and their specific impact on pharmacotherapies, relevant complementary and alternative medicine therapies, and interventional strategies.
