Background and Objectives: Nurses spend more time with patients than other medical personnel and this requires proper decision making by nurses regarding proper and effective pain control in patients. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine the knowledge and attitude of nurses in Jahrom University of Medical Sciences towards pain management.
Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was performed on 142 nurses working in hospitals of Jahrom University of Medical Sciences in 2021. Data collection tools in this study are demographic information questionnaire and nurseschr('39') knowledge and attitude questionnaire about pain. Data analysis was performed using SPSS software version 21 and descriptive statistical tests and inferential tests.
Results: The mean score of nurses chr('39')knowledge about pain management was 10.8. 3.3 and the mean score of nurseschr('39') attitude towards pain management was 63.1. 7.9. The level of knowledge of the majority of nurses was 130 (91.5%) and the level of attitude of the majority of nurses towards pain management was 112 (78.9%). Only 24 (16.9%) nurses had a positive attitude towards pain management. Pearson correlation coefficient showed a positive and significant relationship between knowledge score and nurseschr('39') attitude score (r = 0.248, p = 0.003).
