    Abstract [en]

    Background: Pain is an individual experience which can be difficult to convey to others but it is an inevitable phenomenon after surgery. Nurses must assess the patient's postoperative pain from a holistically perspective. Studies indicated that there is a difference between nurses’ assessments of pain intensity and patients’ experience of pain. Several factors complicate pain assessment.

    Aim: The aim of this literature–based study was to describe factor that affects nurses in the assessment of postoperative pain in patients.

    Method: A literature review based on 15 peer-reviewed and systematically selected scientific articles.

    Findings: Patients felt that their pain was often underestimated by nurses. Nurses considered that the verbal ability to express pain is the most important factor in order to make an adequate assessment of pain. Nurses admitted the difficulty of ignoring their own values and accept what the patient expressed about their pain.

    Conclusion: Nurses tended to underestimate patients' pain. Several factors affect the nurse in the assessment of postoperative pain which verbal communication is identified as the most reliable factor. Nurses must improve the evaluation of pain assessment and provide it in a more systematic way.
