Background & Aim: Self-efficacy of correct pain management and emotional intelligence are the most responsibilities of nurses, which, if properly considered, will reduce patients' pain, better manage patients, increase the quality of patient care, quickly return of the patients to daily life, reduce the length of stay in hospital, and reduce treatment costs. Therefore, the present study was conducted to determine the self-efficacy of pain management and its relationship with emotional intelligence in the nurses.
Materials & Methods: The current cross-sectional study was fulfilled by available sampling method on 110 nurses from the internal and surgical, infectious, CCU, ICU, pediatric, and emergency departments in the morning, evening, and night shifts of Razi and Salahuddin hospitals in Baneh city, Iran. Data were collected by researcher using Demographic questionnaire, Pain Management Self-Efficacy questionnaire, and Goleman Emotional Intelligence questionnaire. The results were analyzed in SPSS version 25 software using descriptive statistics and independent t-tests, one-way analysis of variance, and Pearson's correlation coefficient. A probability of <0.05 was accepted as significant.
Results: The study results showed that pain management self-efficacy had no significant relationship with nurses' demographic characteristics such as age, gender, marriage, education level, position, overtime, work experience, and employment status (P>0.05). However, there was a significant relationship between pain management self-efficacy and its dimensions with the variables of the service department and training workshop as well as between pain management self-efficacy and the dimension of pain assessment (P<0.05). Emotional intelligence has no significant relationship with nurses' demographic characteristics such as age, gender, marriage, education level, service department, position, overtime, work experience, employment status, and participation in educational workshops (P>0.05). Also, no significant relation was observed between pain management self-efficacy and nurses' emotional intelligence (P>0.05).
Conclusion: Although pain management self-efficacy was not significantly related to nurses' emotional intelligence, some demographic characteristics were significantly related. The findings show that work experiences, awareness, practical knowledge, positive attitude, and skills can increase pain management self-efficacy.
