Under-treatment of cancer pain due to gender and ethnic differences in pain description was recently recognized. To improve cancer pain assessment and management and to meet health care needs of increasing ethnic minority populations, the development of a knowledge base about cancer pain reported by women from diverse cultural groups (WDCG) is imperative. To develop the knowledge base, this study consists of three phases: (a) data collection; (b) computer software development; and (c) validation. Here, only the first phase is presented. For the first phase, 50 nursing schools in 17 countries were contacted through Web sites, and a total of 20 faculty members who were self-identified experts in oncology nursing were recruited through e-mail. International Internet focus group discussions through a Web site and e-mail were conducted using 11 sociodemographic questions and 11 discussion topics about cancer pain and management. Then, the data were divided into quantitative and qualitative, and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics, and content analysis. The findings indicated ethnic differences in descriptions and responses to cancer pain, and provided a database about cancer pain that will ultimately help oncology nurses to accurately assess cancer pain reported by WDCG.
