Evaluation of "The Many Faces of Pain": a chronic cancer pain management education program.
(Clinical Trial;Journal Article)
A descriptive, correlational design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of a chronic cancer pain management education program. The Nurses' Knowledge and Attitude Survey Regarding Pain (NKAS) was used to evaluate the program. A convenience sample of 27 registered nurses was recruited to participate in the study. Analysis of the data revealed a significant difference between pre-test and post-test scores on the NKAS. There were no significant correlations observed between any study variables. The small convenience sample prevents the ability to generalize the findings. It is concluded that the education program was effective in improving knowledge and attitudes related to chronic cancer pain management. Implications for nursing practice, research, education, and administration are suggested.
