Abstract

Objective: Pain is the most common reason for seeking health care and it does not often receive enough attention in older patients. The purpose of this study is to examine the level of knowledge that Iranian registered nurses have about assessing and managing pain in elderly patients. Methods: In this cross-sectional study carried out between September 2012 and January 2013, the Pain in the Elderly Questionnaire (PEQ), was used to gather data and examine the level of knowledge that Iranian nurses had concerning pain management for older patients. Results: Of the 518 nurses who participated in this study, 83.8% (n = 434) was women and 16.2% (n = 84) was men. The mean correct score for the 14 items was 46.4% (range = 7.1% to 85.7). No relationship was found between levels of knowledge and nurses' years of experiences or gender (p 0.05). Conclusion: Registered nurses in Iran were not sufficiently knowledgeable about pain management in older patients. Nursing education administrators should consider including more training for nurses in caring for the elderly population. Key words: Nurses; knowledge; pain management; elderly patients.
