Abstract

Postoperative pain is a problem for many disciplines. We thought that those who deal with postoperative pain on a daily basis might be able to find a way to solve this problem. Accordingly, we prepared a questionnaire regarding postoperative pain and its treatment for a randomized group of anesthesiologists, surgeons and clinical nurses working at Gazi University Hospital. The form was given to a total of 75 participants, 40 of whom were women and 35 men. The results were analyzed in terms of numbers and percentages. The participants had a mean age of 36.44 ± 6.61 and 10.04 ± 5.53 years of experience. While coronary by-pass surgery was accepted as the most painful operation (25%), the least painful was corneal transplantation (41%). Postoperative pain treatment was assessed as sufficient by 53%, insufficient by 30% and moderate by the rest of the participants. Fifty-five percent of the participants decided that "postoperative pain must be treated by an anesthesiologist". According to these results, we decided that a teamwork approach to this multidisciplinary issue would be more effective at our hospital.
