Abstract [en]

Aim: The purpose of this study was to describe how patients perceive the use of the numeric rating scale in postoperative pain assessments. Background: There are recommendations to use a pain scale to follow patients postoperative pain. Most patients prefer the NRS but there is a discrepancy between patients and healthcare professionals how to interpret the ratings from the pain assessments. Methods: A descriptive design with a phenomenographic approach was used. Semi structured interviews were held with 25 patients. Results: Three description categories emerged that illustrate patients perceptions; use of the NRS facilitated communication of pain, it put demands on healthcare professionals and care routines and it contained interpretation difficulties. Conclusion: The NRS has a place in pain management according to the patients but there is a need for a dialogue to give the patients the opportunity to describe their pain and set a common goal.
