Nafisseh S. Warner, M.D., studies the associations of pain and opioids with cognitive decline in older adults. Her research interests include pain management and neurocognitive outcomes in the aging population, with the goal of optimizing pain treatment outcomes in older adults while minimizing adverse effects.
Chronic pain is prevalent in older adults, and prescription opioids are often used to treat pain in this population. It is critically important to understand the long-term effects of prescription opioid use in older adults. Also important is the development of pain pathways that minimize side effects while maximizing patient-specific health goals.
