Background and Aims: Pain is the fifth vital sign, and pediatric nurses plays a key role in the process of pediatric pain management. The present study aimed to determine the effect of pain management training on the knowledge, attitude and self-efficacy of pediatric nurses. Methods: This is a quasi-experimental study including two groups of test and control. The experimental group received a workshop method with a content including (ethical aspect, physiology, assessment tools, and pharmaceutical and non-pharmacological pain management) and was not given in the control group. The PNKAS self-efficacy questionnaires was completed by the participants before and one month after the beginning of the study. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and independent T-test, Fisher exact, and Chi-square tests using SPSS version 20 software. Results: The mean pre-test scores of knowledge and attitude in the control and experimental groups was 50.79-47.14, and after one month was 47.46-53.09, respectively, showed that, training was significantly effective in the knowledge and attitude of the experimental group (P value = 0.01). The mean pre-test score of self-efficacy in the control and experimental groups was (17.01-18.06), and one month later was 20.36-21.03 respectively. Although the self-efficacy score increased in both groups, training significantly increased the self-efficacy of pediatric nurses in the experimental group (P value <0.001). Conclusion: Pain management training is required due to the poor knowledge of pediatric nurses and the importance of pain management in improving the quality of nursing care and the satisfaction of patients with the In addition, feeling high self-efficacy without sufficient knowledge of pain management can disrupt pediatric pain management.
