  1. Knowledge of, attitudes toward, and barriers to pharmacologic management of cancer pain in a statewide random sample of nurses.

    Article - En anglais

    The knowledge of, attitudes toward, and perceived barriers to pharmacologic management of cancer pain were examined in a random statewide sample of nurses (N = 790), using an 82-item questionnaire.

    Although only 7% of the nurses reported working in oncology settings, 59% of the nurses reported having worked with patients with cancer in the last 6 months.

    The scores on the knowledge test ranged from 11 ; to 93% correct, with a mean percent correct of 56.4% (+/ .92).

    Nurses reported relatively liberal attitudes toward pain management, yet also reported believing that 22% of patients overreport pain.

    Results are discussed with respect to implications for practice and education.
