Nurses' inadequate knowledge and attitudes about pain management have been implicated as some of the reasons for undermedication of children's pain. A primary purpose of this study was to examine relationships between nurses' knowledge and attitudes about children's pain management, nurses' actions, and the relief of hospitalized children's acute pain. This research was guided by Orem's Self-Care Deficit Theory of Nursing, supplemented by theories of attitude development from social psychology. Major concepts studied included: nursing agency, nursing systems, therapeutic self-care demand, and basic conditioning factors. A predictive correlational design was used in the study. The sample included 67 nurses caring for hospitalized children experiencing acute pain. The sample of children included 132 children aged 3 to 17 years who were hospitalized for various surgical procedures, burns, vaso-occlusive episodes, or other nonsurgical illnesses. Data were collected using the Nurses Knowledge and Attitudes Survey Regarding Pain, a barrier survey, by calculating percents of available (by physician order) analgesic administered by nurses; and using the Oucher to measure children's pain intensity. Significant positive correlations were found between nurses' actions and children's levels of pain; and between nurses' years of practice with children and nurses' abilities to overcome barriers. Important descriptive findings were discovered.
