Abstract

Patients admitted to the acute care setting with persistent pain are at risk for inadequate pain control. Nursing education and pain management perceptions affect partnership with the patient to achieve effective pain management. Traditional educational approaches that are of didactic nature do not necessarily promote problem-solving and critical thinking skills. This pilot study used a mixed-media vignette approach to provide real-life pain examples to influence both the knowledge and attitudes of staff nurses through problem-based learning. This article describes and evaluates the feasibility of using mixed-media vignettes to deliver pain education to bedside nurses. Two mixed-media vignettes were delivered through nine in-service sessions provided to day, night, and weekend shifts in rolling 30-minute intervals. A feasibility framework was used to evaluate project implementation. The results from this pilot study suggest that this educational approach has the potential to improve patient satisfaction scores in relation to pain management.
