Confirmatory Factor Analysis of the Pain Care Quality Surveys (PainCQ©)

Research Topic: 

The objective of this study was to examine the reliability and validity and to decrease the battery of items in the Pain Care Quality (PainCQ©) Surveys. Patient-reported data were collected prospectively from 337 hospitalized adult patients with pain on medical/surgical oncology units in four hospitals in three states. Cumulative evidence supports the reliability and validity of the companion PainCQ© Surveys in hospitalized patients with pain in the oncology setting. The tools may be relevant in both clinical research and quality improvement. Future research is recommended in other populations, settings, and with more diverse groups.
