[Article in Turkish]

Author information

Medical School Hospital, Gaziantep University, Gaziantep, Turkey.


The study was conducted at Sahinbey Research and Intervention Hospital in order to define the interventions of health staff who were in charge of patient pain care. Those who had been an employee already between February- April 2007 were enrolled in the study. As data collecting tools, a questionnaire prepared by the authors and a scale on pain management methods were used. As far as the total scores obtained from the scale are concerned, 34.7% knows the methods to deal with acute pain very well, 57.8% is good, and 7.5% is fair. In addition, the bullet-in questions of the scale revealed that the participants scored highest for knowledge management, followed by pain evaluation, and the least for the maintenance of physical comfort. The results of the study imply that standardization of education is mandatory to decrease individual differences due to educational status, and that more consideration should be given to pain and pain relief topics in schools providing health education.
