Pain management remains a public concern, resulting in JCAHO pain management standards including requirement of staff education. Different pain management education strategies have been shown to be effective in changing the attitudes and knowledge of care providers, but have not been compared for differences in changing attitudes and knowledge and cost. The purposes of this study are to evaluate and compare changes in attitudes and knowledge of acute pain management after 8-hour, 4-hour class options and a web-based tool. The 8-hour class has been offered 4 times with a total of 155 RN participants. Pre- and one month post-class surveys were administered. Though the post-test return rate was approximately 50%, results of the Nurses' Knowledge and Attitude Survey Regarding Pain (Ferrell and McCafferey, 1987) showed a statistically significant improvement in scores (p<0.001). One 4-hour class has been held with three more scheduled. Initial analysis indicates the 4-hour class is also effective, however sample size is too small to make comparisons between the classes. An additional web-based education option is in progress. Evaluation of the effectiveness and cost of educational options related to pain management will continue to be important to meet patient needs in a cost-conscious environment.
