Evaluation of Nurses' Perception and Attitude Toward Use of an Oral Patient Controlled Analgesia Device

Patient Controlled Analgesia (PCA) administered intravenously is generally well accepted by nurses and patients. PCA devices are now available for oral medications allowing patients to self-administer pain pills without requesting them from the nurse. This Institutional Review Board approved project evaluated nurses’ perceptions and attitudes toward using an oral PCA device for patients’ pain.
