Abstract:
Introduction and Purpose: The Pain Game, a board type game, for teaching pain management principles was developed for use during nursing orientation. Results of a pilot study of orientation participants supported the use of the game as an engaging teaching tool. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of The Pain Game for newly hired nurses' retention of important patient safety information related to pain assessment and management. The research questions were: 1) Is there a significant difference between nursing orientation participants' knowledge of pain management knowledge prior to participating in the Pain Game to knowledge retained two months after participating in the Pain Game? 2) Two months after playing the Pain Game what do the participants identify as the most important information learned during the Pain Game and what additional information should be added to the Pain Game?

Methods:
Design: The study was designed as a pre-post test investigation.
Sample: The sample was 61 nurses who attended the Baptist Health South Florida (BHSF) orientation classes at any of the BHSF hospital sites. Study received BHSF IRB approval.
Instruments: The Pain Knowledge Inventory - PKI-1 is a 10 question, multiple choice test of nurses' current knowledge of aspects of pain assessment and medication management at the time of nursing orientation. The Pain Knowledge Inventory - PKI-2 contains the same questions as PKI-1and two additional questions to determine the most important information learned by nurses from the Pain Game and any additional information that should be added to the Game.
Procedures: Study explained and PKI-1 administered to nurse participants prior to playing the Pain Game during orientation. Participants handed in PKI-1 and completed a second envelope with their clinical address. Two months later PKI-2 was distributed using the clinical addressed envelope. Completed PKI-2 data were returned to the researcher's office using inter hospital mail and without the clinical addressed envelopes so all data is anonymous and identified by code only.
Data Analysis: The differences between the pre and post scores are being analyzed and findings will be available at the conference. The answers to the questions concerning the most important information and additional items needed in the Pain Game will be presented.
Discussion: Orientation of new nurses to a hospital system is an overwhelming event and use of a special method for conveying important clinical care information such as pain assessment and management is needed. The results of this study will be used to determine the continuation of the use of the pain game and perhaps development of similar strategies for conveying other clinical knowledge.
