Abstract:
Purpose: The primary purposes of this study are to: a) determine current knowledge and attitude of nurses regarding pain management, b) explore the relationship between nurses' knowledge and attitude regarding pain management and their work setting, ethnicity, and years of practice in nursing, and c) examine whether patient behavior, age, vital signs, or lifestyle influence nurses' assessment of pain management. Significance: This research study can assist in identifying nurses' knowledge deficits & inappropriate attitudes regarding pain management. This information can be used to development and implement effective nursing interventions to help nurses achieve better pain management outcomes. Design: A descriptive correlational design will be used. Data will be collected using a demographic data questionnaire and the Knowledge and Attitude Regarding Pain questionnaire and the Controlling Pain Vignettes tools developed by McCaffery & Ferrell. Methods: The study will be conducted in a five-hospital integrated healthcare system located in an urban city in a Southeastern state. A convenience sample of 230 nurses (including both registered nurses and licensed practical nurses) in various settings within the healthcare system will be recruited. Participants will access the research study via a consent form with a web link provided in their computer-based learning system inbox. Data will be compiled from the computer-based survey system and exported into the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) system. Data will be analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistics using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) Release 12.0. Statistical methods will include frequencies, percentages, means, standard deviations, and analysis of variance. Pre-analysis data screening will be conducted prior to statistical analysis. Findings: Research Study is still in progress. Data collection has begun and will continue through August 2007. All data should be collected, analyzed, and findings/outcomes determined by December 2007. Conclusions: Pending research completion. Implications for Practice: Will depend on research findings and conclusions. Preliminary expectation is that research will indicate areas for CNS's and nurses to focus on in order to improve nurses knowledge and attitudes regarding pain management and ultimately improve patient pain management outcomes.
