Social media could close the knowledge-to-practice gap in dementia care through more effective dissemination of information about pain management.
Why this matters ?
Pain is often underassessed and undertreated in people with dementia, despite the availability of evidence-based solutions for pain management. Traditional knowledge methods, such as webinars, have not been successful in leading to widespread and timely clinical change.
These important findings suggest that social media may be a more effective way to share research information to broader audiences.
