Pediatric Pain Management Practices
Despite available research on pediatric pain management, pain is still underestimated and undertreated. According to research, nurses’ attitudes and lack of knowledge are some possible causes. This study will explore nurses’ pediatric postoperative pain management practices. The aim is to evaluate if a tailored educational intervention with nurses working in postoperative units improve their knowledge and attitudes of pain management and pain management practices. This is a tailored educational intervention study with a pre-post design and a comparison group (baseline T-1, one month after intervention T-2, and six months after intervention T-3), including a sample of nurses working in six postoperative units. The units are the largest pediatric postoperative units of each of the six university hospitals, covering all health regions in Norway. Three different approches will be used (survey with questionnaire of the nurses, observations of clinical practice, and interviews with children) to collect data about pediatric pain management practices in this study.
