Title:
"Power Over Pain": A Collaborative Community Education Campaign
Author(s):
Boulet, Susan
Author Details:
Susan Boulet, North Florida Regional Medical Center, Gainesville, Florida, USA
Abstract:
Pain, a prevalent and universal human experience, is the most frequent reason that people seek health care. Relief of pain has been a human concern throughout history, while at the same time, the responsibility for pain management has been vaguely defined. Pain, as a healthcare priority, has received increasing attention in recent years, but without a concomitant improvement in the clinical management of pain. Not only does pain impact the health of an individual, it impacts the health of a community. Accordingly, community education may be one avenue to defining accountability for effective pain management. The North Florida Chapter of the American Society of Pain Management Nurses (ASPMN) has initiated a collaborative community pain education project entitled "Power Over Pain." This project will culminate in a pain awareness week in January 2002 during which community seminars, media education, and 5K fun run will spotlight pain management. The goals of this community education campaign are: a) to inform the community about a person's right to appropriate pain management, b) to provide information about the impact of untreated and under treated pain, and c) to educate people about effective ways to communicate pain to healthcare providers. After obtaining an unrestricted grant from Abbott Laboratories, a planning committee of eight registered nurses representing the major healthcare institutions in a north-central Florida community was established. These nurses, all of whom have an interest in pain management, are active members of one or more of the following organizations: ASPMN, Oncology Nursing Society, American Cancer Society, Hospice Nurses Association, and American Society of Post Anesthesia Nurses. Having established an alliance with the American Pain Foundation (APF), the "Power Over Pain" community education campaign has become a pilot program in the APF "Stop Pain Now" initiative. This poster presentation details the steps taken to develop this campaign: 1) concept development, 2) budget projection and funding, 3) timeline assignment, 4) recruitment of professional and community support, 5) educational content development, 6) promotion and advertising, 7) partnering with a national pain organization, and 8) quantifying community response to the educational campaign.
