Persistent pain affects 50% to 75% of adults of the age of 65 and it is often underreported and undertreated in primary care. This manuscript discusses how nurse practitioners and other primary care providers can manage persistent pain in older adults utilizing nonpharmacological methods in addition to standard pharmacological treatments.
