Abstract: Numerous studies revealed that the prevalence of pain remains high in post-operative patients. Little is known about the knowledge and attitudes of Bangladeshi nurses and their practices in post-operative pain management. This study aimed to examine the level of knowledge and attitudes of nurses and their practices regarding post-operative pain management. One hundred nurses were selected by using simple random sampling from two hospitals in Bangladesh. The instruments composed of three parts: (1) Nurses’ Demographic Data Form; (2) Knowledge and Attitudes of Nurses Regarding Post-operative Pain Management Questionnaire, and (3) Nurses’ Caring Behavior Regarding Post-operative Pain Management Questionnaire. The questionnaires were content validated by three experts, and back-translated to the Bengali language. The test-retest reliability coefficient was .72 for the knowledge and attitudes questionnaire and was .87 for the practice questionnaire. Eightyseven questionnaires were returned and used in the data analysis. The findings indicated that nurses had very low level of knowledge and negative attitudes regarding post-operative pain management whereas the level of practice was moderate. Therefore, it is necessary to improve the knowledge and attitudes of nurses and their practices regarding post-operative pain management in Bangladesh.
