The diffusion of the findings of our project PaiNOC (Validation of the pain-related questionnaires of the Nursing Outcomes Classification in the Spanish context) keeps progressing.
This research project, initiated in 2012,was developed as a doctoral thesis by José Carlos Bellido Vallejo at the University of Jaén. It had the objective of validating and refining 6 of the outcomes of the NOC taxonomy aimed at assessing various aspects of pain, through the creation of Spanish versions and with a reduced set of clinical indicators. You can find more information about this project here.
The findings of the psychometric analysis of 3 of these instruments for assessing pain(NOC) have been published on December 2019:
These tools provide nurses with a set of appropriate indicators to assess the impact of pain on people’s lives, the emotional disturbances it produces, and the knowledge they have about pain self-management.
