SPECIFIC CLINICAL ISSUE: The purpose of this clinical consultation is to offer nurses evidence-based strategies to provide holistic care to their patients with comorbid depression and pain. The combination of depression and pain is common and, if not managed effectively, has negative outcomes. Treatment-resistance is one negative outcome. The worst-case scenario for unrelieved depression and/or pain is suicide. MAJOR PRACTICE RECOMMENDATIONS BASED ON BEST EVIDENCE: Antidepressants, particularly duloxetine, have had efficacy for pain and depression...

Eunhea You, David Kim, Ryan Harris, Karen D'Alonzo
OBJECTIVE: Nearly half of hospitalized patients in the United States have reported experiencing pain even while undergoing treatment for pain. Analgesic use is the most common type of treatment for pain management. Many patients who experience pain seek nonpharmacologic interventions to manage their pain, including forms of complementary or alternative medicine such as auricular acupressure (AA). DESIGN: This study conducted the first systematic review of the studies that have evaluated the effect of AA as an adjunct on pain management...

Melek Şahin, İsmet Eşer
AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the Buzzy application on pain and satisfaction during injections. BACKGROUND: Intramuscular injections usually cause some degree of pain at the injection site. Patients are often afraid of receiving injections because they perceive that it will be painful. DESIGN: The study was a single-blind, randomized controlled trial. METHOD: Patients (n = 65) who receive diclofenac sodium intramuscularly at a state hospital in a city in the western region of Turkey were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Pain is highly prevalent in all health care settings, and frequently poorly managed. Effective pain management is predicated on a continuous cycle of screening, assessing, intervening and evaluating. Identifying gaps in nurses' self-perceived pain assessment competencies is an essential first step in the design of tailored interventions to embed effective pain assessment into routine clinical practice, and improve patient reported pain outcomes. Yet, few validated instruments focus on the competencies required for undertaking a comprehensive pain assessment, with most focusing on clinician's pain management competencies...

OBJECTIVES: The United States is experiencing an opioid overdose crisis. Research suggests prolonged postoperative opioid use, a common complication following surgery, is associated with opioid misuse, which, in turn, is the greatest risk factor of heroin misuse. The objective of this review is to evaluate how postoperative opioid exposure relates to prolonged use and to identify factors that predict prolonged postoperative opioid use. DESIGN: An integrative review of the literature...

BACKGROUND: Pain is common among elderly patients in nursing homes. However, pain assessment and treatment are inadequate. Interprofessional treatment is recommended, and consequently interprofessional education in pain management is necessary. AIMS: This pilot project aimed to describe how two interprofessional groups of students approached pain management in two nursing home patients. DESIGN: We formed two teams comprising one student from the nursing, physical therapy, pharmacy, and medical educations...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing treatment for cancer commonly experience symptoms such as sleep disturbance, pain, anxiety, depression, and low energy/fatigue (SPADE), subsequently altering physical function and complicating effective symptom management. However, little is known about the frequency, severity, and clustering of SPADE symptoms in individuals with chronic painful chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). Aims/Design: The purpose of this cross-sectional, secondary analysis was to describe the frequency, severity, and clustering of SPADE symptoms and their association with physical function in individuals with chronic painful CIPN...

BACKGROUND: Pain is the quintessential symptom for individuals suffering from sickle cell disease (SCD). Although the degree of suffering and the cost of treatment are staggering, SCD continues to be grossly understudied, including a lack of data for pain-related genes and prevalence of polymorphisms in this population. This lack of data adds to the inadequacy of pain therapy in this population. Pain genetics investigators have recently examined allele frequencies of single-nucleotide polymorphisms from candidate genes in people who have SCD...

BACKGROUND: Pain is a complex physical and emotional experience. Therefore, assessment of acute pain requires self-report when possible, observations of emotional and behavioral responses and changes in vital signs. Peripheral nerve and epidural catheters often provide postoperative analgesia in children. Administration of chloroprocaine (a short acting local anesthetic) via a peripheral nerve or epidural catheter allows for a comparison of pain scores, observations of emotional and behavioral responses and changes in vital signs to determine catheter function...
