Pain is a significant problem impacting between 50 per cent and 80 per cent of cancer patients and affecting overall quality of life.
Studies have documented that nurses and other health care professionals are inadequately prepared to care for patients in pain.
Several reasons have been identified including inadequacies in nursing and medical education, absence of curriculum content related to pain management, and faculty attitudes and beliefs related to pain.
This article presents data from a cross-sectional mail survey that consisted of a self-administered knowledge and beliefs questionnaire and a self-reported pain curriculum questionnaire.
Faculty from 14 baccalaureate nursing schools in the United States participated in the study.
