Background and objectives: For the most part, people seek medical attention because of discomfort. Cancer pain management is a key nursing intervention that involves expertise in both the art and science of nursing. Patients report increased satisfaction with pain management when it is successful. It was done to "assess the knowledge of staff nurses about management of pain among cancer patients, working in cancer wards at Cancer Hospital, Gwalior (M.P.) with a view to develop an information guide sheet". Method: Using a self-prepared structured questionnaire and delivered to 50 staff nurses at Gwalior's Cancer Hospital, a descriptive survey method was used to collect data (M.P.). Results: The average knowledge score was 43.8%, with a standard deviation of 15.7%. Of those who took the survey, 58% were aware of the causes of cancer pain, 42% understood the ramifications of insufficient cancer pain assessment, 54% understood cancer pain management strategy, 58% agreed that non-pharmacological approaches can help relieve cancer pain, and 28% could identify the obstacles to effective control of cancer pain. Staff nurses' expertise and a number of demographic factors show a strong correlation. Interpretation and conclusion: Average understanding in all of the major aspects was 43.8 percent (SD 15.7 percent). General knowledge had the highest mean knowledge score (54 percent). The median knowledge score on various elements of cancer pain treatment ranged from 34.6% to 54.6%. t-tests and F-tests indicated that demographic characteristics and knowledge of cancer pain treatment were statistically significant at the 5% level.
