The Impact of the Nurse-Physician Professional Relationship on Nurses' Experience of Ethical Dilemmas in Effective Pain Management.
Van Niekerk, Leesa Micole; Martin, Frances
Journal of Professional Nursing, v18 n5 p276-88 Sep-Oct 2002
A survey of 1,015 Australian registered nurses found that those who felt adequately consulted by physicians were significantly more likely to initiate consultation. Nurses dissatisfied with their relationship with physicians were more likely to experience ethical conflicts related to pain management. Level of satisfaction with this relationship affected nurses' involvement in patients' pain management. (Contains 55 references.) (SK)
