Consistent with emerging policy discussions positioning pain relief as a human rights issue, this chapter will focus on the overall health and well-being of ethnic minority older adults. Background information and a platform for discussing the role ethnicity, age, gender, and class have on pain care for an increasingly aging and diversifying society will be provided. Lastly, this chapter will focus on disparities in pain care.
