The Geriatric Pain website was initially created to provide nurses, long-term care staff, and informal caregivers with access to free evidence-based pain assessment and management tools and resources. The website was developed by representatives from five John A. Hartford Centers of Geriatric Nursing Excellence (Iowa, Oregon, Arkansas, California and Pennsylvania) and was hosted by Sigma Theta Tau International until 2017. The website is now supported by the Csomay Center where ongoing efforts continue to assure easy access to current geriatric pain resources. In 2017, funds from the Marilynn H Bowers Dementia Education and Research Fund supported the development of the new section for caregivers and strategies to increase dissemination of best practices.
