Measuring Nursing Care Quality Related to Pain Management

The purpose of this study was to develop and test a questionnaire that can be used to measure opinions of patients about how their nurses manage their pain. Many patients in the hospital report significant pain which can cause distress and limit their ability to carry out your usual activities. The information from this project will provide researchers with an understanding of how patients with pain understand and interpret questions related to the quality of their nursing care. This measure is likely to prove salient to consumers interested in selecting hospitals that can best address their care needs, as well as to hospital administrators and policy makers interested in improving the quality of nursing-related care.
