Title:
Interactive Guide to Managing Cancer Pain
Author(s):

Author Details:

Abstract:
The Cancer Pain: Your Guide to Relief(tm) CD-ROM will provide information and interactive tools to focus cancer patients' learning, decision making, and treatment planning. This interactive program will increase the knowledge and self-efficacy of patients and caregivers and help them to participate with their healthcare team in the pain management process. The program was developed based on a patient education practice model for design of multimedia interventions to support treatment decision-making during previous research and development efforts. The model assumes that patients spend varying levels of time and energy in each of three activities-information gathering, clarifying values and personal preferences, and problem-solving in order to manage daily activities despite pain or to avoid pain. The Cancer Pain: Your Guide to Relief(tm) prototype was developed based on the results from the group interviews and patient, caregiver, and consultant feedback on "concept screens." The overall design combines personal goal setting with information about barriers to meeting those goals because of lack of pain control. The prototype product was tested with cancer patients and caregivers. Pre to post, testers showed an increase in knowledge (p < .001), a change in beliefs about the inevitability of pain with cancer (p = .004), and self-efficacy scores showed a definite improvement overall (p = .001). The presentation will include a demonstration of the product's interactivity.
