A study by Dr. Likar in LKH Klagenfurt showed, that the multimodal pain therapy works better than other therapeutic approaches for the treatment of chronic pain. The Bachelor thesis is focused on the questions of the duties of the nursing staff, the legal basis, the impact of the chronic pain on sufferers and how complementary/non-medical care therapies could be implemented in the professional practice. The goal was to draw a comprehensive picture of the tasks and provide the nursing stuff a well-founded on scientific principles based information source. The questions were developed based on a qualitative literature search, using keywords in various literature databases . The results were documented in a protocol, analyzed and evaluated in further consequence. In order to make the Bachelor thesis more understandable, a case example was designed and it‘s underlined by statements of a chronic pain patient. It turned out that the nursing staff plays a key role in the multimodal pain therapy. It requires a high level of expertise and empathy of the nursing staff.
