REVIEW
Brenna L Quinn, Heidi Collins Fantasia
Within current priorities for pain research set by the American Society for Pain Management Nursing, there is a paucity of pediatric pain research. Qualitative approaches are helpful when researching topics about which little is known. Focus groups are one method of qualitative data collection and have been successfully implemented with children and parents. The purpose of this paper was to identify ideal conditions for nurse researchers to employ when using focus groups as a data collection method for studies aiming to investigate pain in children...

Heart failure (HF) is a costly and growing health problem that is routinely complicated by chronic pain and depression. The purpose of this paper is to describe the characteristics of pain and pain management in depressed HF patients. In this descriptive cross-sectional study, we analyzed data from 62 participants with depression and class II-IV HF. Study variables of interest were collected from the Brief Pain Inventory, Beck Depression Inventory, and Rand-36. Almost all participants (98%) had some pain in the past month and most had pain in the last 24 hours (66%)...

A previous study found that the modified version of the Pain Assessment Checklist for Seniors with Limited Ability to Communicate (PACSLAC-II) is a valid tool to assess pain in elderly individuals suffering from dementia and who are unable to communicate verbally. The primary objective of this study was to confirm the convergent validity of the PACSLAC-II using direct evaluation of long-term care residents in real-life situations, using two other well-validated pain assessment scales (i.e., PACSLAC and Pain Assessment in Advanced Dementia [PAINAD])...

This paper examined hospital characteristics, staffing, and nursing care factors associated with patient perception of poor pain control by conducting a secondary analysis of the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Care Providers Systems (HCAHPS) survey in California, Massachusetts, and New York hospitals. Analysis of variance was used to analyze the relationship between nurse, hospitalist, physician, and resident staffing and patients' perception of pain control. Twenty-one factors correlated with patients' reports of pain control were included in the stepwise linear regression analysis...

REVIEW
Debra Topham, Debra Drew
CAPA is a multifaceted pain assessment tool that was adopted at a large tertiary Midwest hospital to replace the numeric scale for adult patients who could self-report their pain experience. This article describes the process of implementation and the effect on patient satisfaction scores. Use of the tool is supported by the premise that pain assessment entails more than just pain intensity and that assessment is an exchange of meaning between patients and clinicians dependent on internal and external factors...

Paula Forgeron, Andrea Higginson, Carolyn Truskoski
Little is known about specific factors related to chronic pain that need to be considered to support successful transition from pediatric to adult health care settings. This is troubling because 1 in 5 adolescents may experience chronic pain and many will continue to live with pain into adulthood. This paper reviews what is known about successful transition processes for adolescents with various chronic conditions and the unique factors associated with chronic pain and includes a call for further research on transition...

Ductal carcinoma in situ is a noninvasive precancer condition. The treatment resembles the treatment of invasive breast cancer. The aim of this exploratory study was to gain knowledge on the level of postoperative pain, sensory disturbances, and distress among a small group of Danish women with ductal carcinoma in situ who had sentinel lymph node biopsy in order to plan a population study. A subgroup of patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (n = 20) was compared to patients with invasive breast cancer (n = 455) at time of diagnosis and after 12 months...

Chronic pain requires affected individuals to self-manage their health. This study compared barriers and facilitators of self-management in two groups of people with chronic pain: those with and without neuropathic characteristics. A cross-sectional survey study of community-dwelling Canadians was conducted. The sample (n = 710) included randomly selected participants who reported chronic pain. The Self-Report Leeds Assessment of Neuropathic Symptoms and Signs was used to screen for neuropathic characteristics...

Kristen E Jastrowski Mano, Robert C Gibler, Lynn M Rusy, Renee J Ladwig, Caroline O Madormo, Keri R Hainsworth
Chronic pain is highly prevalent in youth and often results in significant health care usage and familial distress. Telephone triage nurses in pediatric pain clinics provide support and consultation to families and engage parents of pediatric pain patients in interdisciplinary intervention efforts. Despite evidence of winter predominance in rates of pain-related and psychiatric complaints, seasonal variations have not been examined in terms of the demand placed on pain clinic triage nurses. The present study investigated seasonal patterns in the frequency and type of phone calls made over the course of 1 year to an interdisciplinary outpatient pediatric chronic pain clinic at a large Midwestern children's hospital...

Effective pain management is an elusive concept in acute care. Inadequate knowledge has been identified as a barrier to providing optimal pain management. This study aimed to determine student perceptions of an interactive computer simulation as a potential method for learning pain management, as a motivator to read and learn more about pain management, preference over traditional lecture, and its potential to change nursing practice. A post-computer simulation survey with a mixed-methods descriptive design was used in this study...

All nurses care for patients with pain, and pain management knowledge and attitude surveys for nurses have been around since 1987. However, no validated knowledge test exists to measure postlicensure clinicians' knowledge of the core competencies of pain management in current complex patient populations. To develop and test the psychometric properties of an instrument designed to measure pain management knowledge of postlicensure nurses. Psychometric instrument validation. Four large Midwestern U.S. hospitals...

The Joint Commission recommended the Pasero Opioid-induced Sedation Scale (POSS) to minimize opioid-induced respiratory depression. However, there is a paucity of data describing its impact on patient safety. This study assessed the impact of POSS implementation or reeducation on naloxone use in patients receiving hydromorphone. This retrospective, Institutional Review Board-approved study performed with the Indianapolis Coalition for Patient Safety was conducted in two phases, 3 months before and after intervention...

Evidence to support the argument that general anesthesia (GA) with paravertebral block (PVB) provides better pain relief for mastectomy patients than GA alone is contradictory. The aim of this study was to explore pain and analgesia after mastectomy with or without PVB during acute inpatient recovery. A retrospective study was conducted in a single hospital providing specialist cancer services in metropolitan Melbourne, Australia. We explored pain and concomitant analgesic administration in 80 consecutive women recovering from mastectomy who underwent GA with (n = 40) or without (n = 40) PVB...
