Developed a pain management education program aimed at addressing the educational needs of home hospice patients and their primary caregivers.  The program targets an overarching problem where pain often goes unrecognized and under treated in hospice patients, contributing to patient and caregiver stress during the end-of-life (Coyne, Mulvenon, & Paice, 2018).

Educational Plan

The following is our curriculum plan, consisting of seven sessions:

  1. Initial home visit/family meeting: we will establish therapeutic communication and address the goal of pain management.
  2. Identify the methods and tools to assess pain: we will introduce and develop skills utilizing various pain scales.
  3. Understanding different types of pharmacologic analgesic drugs: we will discuss opioid v. non-opioid medications.  We will also address potential limitations to adequate pain management.
  4. Organizational methods to manage medications:  we will instruct on appropriate methods to tracking, storing, and disposing of meds.
  5. Understanding side effects of pain medicine:  we will address common side effects and their treatments.
  6. Education on non-pharmacologic options for pain:  alternative methods, such as massage, guided imagery, and relaxation techniques will be discussed.  We will provide resources to attain these interventions.
  7. Review of caregiver knowledge:  this session will evaluate the methods introduced and evaluate their efficacy.  We will also continue to encourage thorough communication.

Program Development Process

The organizational framework of a program serves to guide knowledge development, prioritize topics, and establish a timeline (Billings & Halstead, 2016).  Our patient education program follows the single-theory framework, where the central theme is caring.  Educational sessions are designed to develop patient and caregiver knowledge, comprehension, and application (Utica College, n.d.) in managing pain, ensuring maximal patient comfort at the end-of-life.  These goals are congruent with the organization’s mission, vision, and philosophy, which include the provision of high-quality care by a team of dedicated health professionals (Suncrest Home Health and Hospice, n.d.).
