Regina,

I spoke with Jaclyn a little bit about her project and I know she focused primarily on alternative methods of pain control.
I'm going to meet with her to take a look at her final project so that I can try to take a different direction.

I'm interested in the apparent disconnect between our low HCAHPS scores for pain control and our RN's perceptions of
pain control (i.e. we believe we do a very good job managing pain). I'm hoping your data may address why patients
believe their pain is poorly controlled so that I can take that information back to our nurses and perhaps perform some
education or create some interventions to close the gap. I have not yet decided whether to use just our unit's data, but I
do like the idea of a larger sample size.

Would you be available to chat by phone on Wednesday morning? I have a 5 month old at home, so its difficult for me to
come in to the hospital on my days off.

Thank you,
Aurora

Jaclyn Schulte collected data on patients on your unit last spring and summer. Here is the data. Perhaps we can
chat about what you are thinking of doing that could build on her project. Are you thinking about focusing on
your unit or doing something housewide. The data I shared with you is just from your unit. I do have housewide
data of 106 patients. I need to enter more cases. I think I have a total of 120 patients we interviewed.
I am very busy this week going to the palliative care conference on Monday and Tuesday but do have some
time to chat with you on Wednesday. What is your schedule? I might be able to also talk another time just not
meet in person.
Regina

Ms. Fink,

I believe Barb Wenger spoke to you about my interest in doing a Level 3 credentialling project on the topic of pain
control. Specifically, I'm interested in looking at improving our number of patients who report their pain was well
controlled during their hospital stay. She tells me that you have some data from a hospital wide study regarding pain
control. Can you send this data to me? Or would it be possible to meet to discuss my project? I would greatly value any
help you can offer me.

Thank you,
Aurora Davis
