DESIGN: Validation study. SETTING: Oncology, long term care wards and hospice of 5 different italian regions. SAMPLE: 157 nurses divided in four groups according to the setting: students (29), general medical wards (35), oncology (43) and hospice (50). METHODS: The instrument was translated and adapted from English to Italian by a group of experts in pain and by pilot-testing. It was completed by 90% of the sample and the percentage of correct answers and alpha Cronbach were calculated. The test-retest reliability was measured having the questionnaire completed after a 14 days time interval, by the nurses of medical wards. RESULTS: The instrument discriminated between levels of expertise. Overall, the average percentage of correct answers was 52.7%: 40.7% for student nurses, 46% for general medicine nurses, 56.3% for oncology nurses and 62% for hospice nurses (P
