Purpose. The purpose of this study was to investigate the evidence-based pain management knowledge, performance and Evidence-Based Practice(EBP) attitude of nurses at small-medium sized hospitals. Methods. The sample of this study were 214 nurses. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation and stepwise multiple regression using SPSS/Win 21.0 Results. Evidence-based pain management knowledge score averaged $3.95{\pm}0.43$, with significant differences depending on clinical experiences. Performance score averaged $3.77{\pm}0.51$. EBP attitude score averaged $3.21{\pm}0.57$, and significant differences were evident depending on hospital division and clinical setting. Evidence-based pain management knowledge and EBP attitude were significant predictors of evidence-based pain management performance. Conclusions. This result indicates that education and training programs to facilitate evidence-based pain management knowledge, performance, and EBP attitude are needed among nurses.
