Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Introduction: Studies show that current guidelines and standards for pediatric pain management have not been applied consistently. Nurses' knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about pain and pain management affect how they address patients' needs. A survey was performed to evaluate competency in pain management at eight pediatric hospitals. Methods: A survey tool with established validity and reliability (PNKAS (C) Manworren 1999) was identified and modified slightly for more universal applicability by a committee of pediatric nurses, in concurrence with the author. Demographic data, exclusive of identifiers, were requested for the purpose of correlation with survey scores. Data were analyzed using Student's t-test, analysis of variance (ANOVA) and correlation analysis. Results: Surveys from 295 nurses were completed for a 46% return rate. The average respondent was age 41, graduated (from most recent nursing degree) 13 years prior, had 15 years nursing experience, spent 59% of time in direct patient care and read 1.6 monthly journals. The mean individual test score was 74% (range 37-100%). Scores were correlated with demographic data. Overall significant differences in survey scores were among groups formed by years post-graduation, among the groups formed by years of nursing experience and among the groups formed by years of pediatric nursing experience. The group who had been working 10-15 years post-graduation had significantly (p<.05) higher scores than the group who had graduated 0-2 years prior, the group with 0-2 years nursing experience had significantly (p<.05) lower scores than the other five nursing experience groups, and the group with 0-2 years of pediatric nursing experience had significantly (p<.05) lower scores than the three groups with less than 15 years of pediatric nursing experience groups. The nurses who responded "Yes" to professional nursing organization activity had significantly higher scores than those who responded "No". The nurses who respond...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.]
