Development of the Adverse Analgesic Drug Event Measure

imageBackground Little is known about how people respond to an analgesic adverse drug event despite the significant incidence of deaths and hospitalizations associated with analgesic adverse drug events. Objective The purpose of this two-phase instrument development study was to test the validity and reliability of the Analgesic Adverse Drug Event Measure (AADEM). Methods Content validity was established during Phase I. Six experts rated the 58-item measure developed from a pilot survey of adults who had experienced an analgesic adverse drug event. Experts’ ratings supported a 17-item AADEM with a scale content validity index of .86. Phase II consisted of online administration of the AADEM to a national Qualtrics panel who reported an adverse drug event from a self-administered analgesic. Exploratory factor analysis was conducted using principal axis factoring and oblique rotation including Direct Oblimin and Promax rotations with Kaiser normalization. Results Four factors emerged from the analysis: sought care, consulted provider, discontinued or continued analgesic, and attributed adverse drug event with a total explained variance of 55.4%. Scale content validity index for the 13-item AADEM was .88. Internal consistency for the four subscales was acceptable, but low for the full 13-item AADEM. Discussion Results establish preliminary evidence for the validity and reliability of the 13-item AADEM to measure response to an analgesic adverse drug event. Next steps involve confirmatory factor analysis in a different sample to examine the underlying construct of the AADEM. The AADEM might help identify people at risk for serious analgesic adverse drug events.

Efficacy of a Breastfeeding Pain Self-Management Intervention: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial

imageBackground Over 90% of women experience pain during breastfeeding initiation and lack strategies to self-manage breast and nipple pain. Guided by the Individual and Family Self-Management Theory, a breastfeeding self-management (BSM) intervention targeted women's knowledge, beliefs, and social facilitation to manage their breast and nipple pain and achieve their breastfeeding goals. Objectives The purpose of this longitudinal pilot randomized control trial (RCT) was to test the preliminary efficacy of the BSM intervention on general and specific pain related to breastfeeding. Methods Sixty women intending to breastfeed were approached within 48 hours of delivery to participate in this pilot RCT (30 randomized to the BSM intervention and 30 randomized to the control group). All participants provided baseline data before discharge and pain and breastfeeding measures at 1, 2, and 6 weeks. Participants in the BSM intervention group received educational modules addressing breast and nipple pain and biweekly, text-based nurse coaching and completed a daily breastfeeding journal. Results Women in the BSM intervention group reported significantly less breast and nipple pain at 1 and 2 weeks using a visual analog scale (p
