Abstract:
Research discoveries are meaningless unless they reach clinicians at the point of care. This study uses a collaborative research utilization (CRU) model to close the prevailing research-to-practice gap in home care pain management. In this study, academic scientists and students formed a partnership with multidisciplinary clinicians from three home care organizations that (a) examined the research base in home care pain management, (b) generated a standard of care based on that research, and (c) tested its impact on patient and family outcomes. It was hypothesized that involving clinicians, academic scientists, and students in the development and integration of research-based pain managements standards would lead to outcomes in patients and their families such as: decreased severity of pain, greater patient satisfaction with pain management, decreased interference of pain with quality-of-life indicators, and decreased family caregiver burden of pain management. To test this hypothesis, a two-group quasiexperimental clinical trial was conducted using 160 patient subjects in two study sites. The Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) and Caregiver Burden Tool (CBT) were administered on the admission visit, visit three, and discharge visit to measure outcome variables in control and experimental group subjects across the trajectory of home care. Control subjects received the conventional care prior to development and testing of the research based standard. Following clinician participation in the six phases of the CRU model, data were collected on experimental subjects who receive their care using the new pain standard. Statistical analysis includes univariate descriptive statistics, Chi Square, Independent t-test, and analysis of covariance (significance level of p< .05). Using this model may significantly improve pain management for patients in home care as it has for hospitalized patients in previous studies. There is also greater likelihood that the innovations of pain management research will be integrated by present and future clinicians at the bedside since both have participated in their development. The study will be completed in October 2001.
