Abstract: Immediately after surgery, a high level of pain is expected but pain management appeared to be inadequate, which results in a number of post-operative complications. Nurses with a strong clinical knowledge, attitudes and skills are essential for relieving the suffering of pain in children undergoing surgery. Pain management nursing practice for children in Bangladesh is erratic, inconsistent and deviates from recommended standards. Initiatives are needed to improve this current situation. To do this it is necessary to examine the level of nurses’ knowledge and attitudes as well as their post-operative pain management practice for children in the context of Bangladesh. A descriptive survey was conducted during November 2009-January 2010. Approval was obtained from the Institutional Review Board (IRB) of PSU, Thailand, and the target hospital directors. Data were collected from 93 pediatric surgical nurses at three medical college hospitals in Bangladesh. A survey questionnaire was used to collect data about nurses’ knowledge and attitudes and their pain management practices for children undergoing surgery. The data were analyzed by frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and Pearson’s product-moment correlation coefficient. The study revealed that nurses’ knowledge and attitudes in pain management was at the moderate level ( x = 66.79%) and the pain management practice was also at the moderate level ( x = 78.16%). No relationship was observed between nurses’ knowledge and attitudes, and their pain management practices (r = .01, and p = .89). The findings highlight the need to improve nurses’ knowledge and attitudes and their practice in certain areas of pain assessment, pharmacological and non pharmacological pain management. Initiatives are recommended, such as including the pain content in nursing curriculum, and arranging inservice- education and training in pain management for pediatric nurses in Bangladesh.
