A theory-based educational intervention targeting nurses' attitudes and knowledge concerning cancer-related pain management: A study protocol of a quasi-experimental design
Gunilla Borglin, Markus Gustafsson, Hans Krona
BMC Health Services Research , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6963-11-233
Abstract: A quasi-experimental study design will be used to investigate whether the implementation of guidelines for systematic daily pain assessments following a theory-based educational intervention will result in an improvement in knowledge and attitude among nurses. A further aim is to investigate whether the intervention that targets nurses' behaviour will improve hospital patients' perception of pain. Data regarding nurses' knowledge and attitudes to pain (primary outcome), patient perception regarding pain (secondary outcome), together with socio-demographic variables, will be collected at baseline and at four weeks and 12 weeks following the intervention.Nursing care is nowadays acknowledged as an increasingly complicated activity and "nursing complexity is such that it can be seen as the quintessential complex intervention." To be able to change and improve clinical practice thus requires multiple points of attack appropriate to meet complex challenges. Consequently, we expect the theory-based intervention used in our quasi-experimental study to improve care as well as quality of life for this group of patients and we also envisage that evidence-based guidelines targeting this patient group's pain will be implemented more widely.ClinicalTrials.gov NCT01313234Pain is one of the most common problems among patients suffering from cancer [1]. Despite the availability of effective pharmacological treatments and the fact that 70 - 90% of the patients can gain pain relief with the correct pain management, this group often receives less than optimal treatment [2-7]. This is demonstrated, for example, in one of the most extensive studies performed in Europe (EPIC), which found that 43% of the Swedish patients experienced cancer-related pain, 18% of whom did not receive any pain-relieving medication, despite grading their pain as moderate to severe on the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS ≥ 5) [8]. In a Meta-analysis (52 studies included) by van den Beuken and colleagues [1] investig

Adequate knowledge of nurses in taking care of central venous pressure line plays vital role to minimizecomplications and to accurately recognize catheter-related problems, thus securing safer and improved outcome forthe patient. This study was performed to fi nd out the effectiveness of educational intervention in increasing nurses’ knowledge regarding care of patients with Central Venous Line among nurses. Methods: This is a pre-experimental study design (pre-intervention---intervention---post-intervention). After institutionalapproval, 40 nurses were taken from Kathmandu Medical College Teaching Hospital for study adopted with SimpleRandom Sampling (Lottery) method. A structured, self-administered questionnaire was used for pre- intervention datacollection After two weeks of educational intervention, post- intervention test was taken. The data was analysed andcalculated by using descriptive Statistics and Paired “t” test was applied to assess the differences between pre-interventionand post- intervention results. Results: Overall, mean knowledge score was 14.75 with SD 2.37 in the pre intervention. After educational interventionthe score was changed to 16.80 with SD 5.51. There was signifi cant difference between the pre -intervention and postinterventionknowledge score (p value =0.039).While assessing the overall existing knowledge level of the participants, most of the participants had moderate knowledgelevel (50% to 75%). After intervention knowledge level signifi cantly increased (p value=0.001). Conclusion: The study showed that educational intervention programme considerably improved the nurses’ level ofknowledge about care of patient with central line. Overall mean knowledge score between pre-intervention and postinterventionwas found to be significant.

Ragnhild Johanne Tveit Sekse, Margrethe Elin Vika
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2016.63024
Abstract: Aim: The aim of this study is to provide insight into nurses’ role and their experiences of leading an education and counselling group intervention for women after gynecological cancer. Methods: A qualitative study, based on focus group interview and logs from nurses who led the intervention, was conducted. Findings: The group leaders were touched by the women’s community and were given a deeper understanding of lived experiences after cancer. These insights raised the group-leaders’ understanding of nursing and influenced them to sharpen focus on patient care and priorities in cancer care and follow-up. Being a group-leader meant creating a trusting and secure atmosphere in which the individual woman’s own coping resources was strengthened and empowered. Equally important, the nurses worked continuously and substantially on themselves to build strength and endurance related to situations that called for competent leadership. Conclusion: Being competent in group leadership and having knowledge in the field of cancer are important qualifications for group leaders. Practice Implications: The study shows that nurses gain valuable insight and knowledge about women’s lived experiences of going through gynecological cancer, cancer treatment and rehabilitation. As such, this intervention seems to be educational for nurses, as well as for participants.
