Abstract [en]

Aims and objectives: To (1) examine the clinical applicability of compiled mode and maximum values from the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) by comparing the correspondence between patient perceptions of pain and pain values from monitoring records, as well as (2) to study the relationship between mode and maximum values and self-assessed ability for early postoperative recovery.

Background: Documentation of pain remains a problem despite recommendations of quality improvements. To examine the correlation between patient perceptions and documented pain therefore becomes important. Few have studied how pain affects recovery.

Design: A quantitative cross-sectional design was used in which 157 postoperative patients answered a questionnaire on pain intensity and recovery. A parallel examination of pain in monitoring records was conducted.

Results: A total of 57% had a mode value calculated from records between 0 and 3 on postoperative day 1 and 69% on day 2. A maximum value between 4 and 10 was found in monitoring records for 73% on day 1 and for 67% on day 2. The correspondence between mode value from monitoring records and the patients’ retrospective perceptions was 88% for NRS 0–3 and 92% between maximum value and NRS 4–10. The correlation between documented pain and retrospectively identified pain for mode value of the NRS in all (0–10) was rather weak (r = 0·37), while maximum value had a stronger correlation (r = 0·53).

Conclusion: Mode and maximum values could be used as outcome measures when evaluating postoperative pain. Pain affects recovery negatively, but more research is needed to strengthen the evidence for the use and clarify the link between pain and recovery.

Relevance to clinical practice: International organisations emphasise the importance of improving pain assessment. Mode and maximum values are easy to compile for nurses and can, together with assessments of how experienced pain levels affect postoperative recovery, improve treatment of postoperative pain.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to test the reliability and validity of an existing patient classification instrument in anaesthetic nursing in a new context.

Background: A patient classification system has to be used by many nurses, so consistency in how it is used is important.

Methods: The study was divided into three parts. The first part was intended to measure interreliability using double assessments of 150 anaesthesia cases. In the second part, the anaesthetic nurses carried out the workload and, in part three, content validity was examined using a questionnaire and meetings.

Results: The result showed good to very good consistency across the board in the nurses' assessments, which also included an overall assessment of the workload (r 0,85). The workload showed the highest mean care level for the indicator preparations/surgical position and the lowest for respiration. The questionnaire replies showed that the nurses were positive about workload, but 43.3 per cent thought that the instrument only described part of their work.

Conclusion: The instrument was shown to be of use in different contexts, but the reliability and validation process should continue so as to increase reliability. Clarifying the progression between the different care levels for each indicator in the instrument can be a way of increasing its usefulness in different services. In terms of clinical work, the measurement of workload has started a valuable process of reflection on anaesthetic nursing that helps to enable the nurses to show what they do and why.

Aim: The aim was to study the students/intensive care nurses self rated competence in academic skills, their conceptions of the importance of these skills in their professional work and changing during six year.

Method: The sample consist of one annual cohort of students (n=221) from all higher education institutions in Sweden (n=18) where specialist nurse programs in intensive care nursing were offered in 2000. Data were collected via a questionnaire at the end of the education (2000) and another one 2006. After six year 68 percent (n=150) are still working in ICU and 67 percent of these (n=100) had answered both questionnaires. Mc Nemar was used to analyse changes. The results here are just a small part of a larger study.

Results: 49 percent of the student rated their competence in analysing and making interpretation of research  high/very high at the end of  the education but after six year at work  only 22 percent rated high/very high competence (p= ,000). 38 percent of the student rated their competence in identifying nursing problem and initiating quality improvement work high/very high at the end of the education and after six year at work 42 percent rated high/very high competence (n.s.).  18 percent of the student rated their competence in leading and organising quality improvement work high/very high at the end of the education and after six year at work 24 percent rated high/very high competence (n.s.). The importance for the tree items varying between 64 to 88 percent for important /very important for the professional role.

Conclusion: It will be important to better prepare the nurses in the specialist nurse program for quality improvement work and evidence-based nursing care and the employers have to improve the possibility for nurses to work with evidence-based practice.
