Our findings provide further evidence regarding the relationships between CSQ-Revised and CPCI, two widely used questionnaires that assess coping stratrgies in individuals with chronic pain. A large sample item level factor analysis.

Two independent bilingual translators whose first language was English back-translated the initial translation; they did not have medical backgrounds and were unaware of the concepts being explored.

Rutgers University Press; Browne MW, Cudeck R. Two translators, whose first language was Italian, each independently translated the English version into Italian, keeping the language colloquial and compatible with a reading age of 14 years.

Xtrategies comparison of two measures. The aim was to ensure the Italian version reflected the same item content as the original version and was questionnaiee equivalent. However, not everyone experiencing chronic pain is physically disabled or invariably depressed; many continue their work and social activities, and rarely seek medical assistance or the help of a significant other 1.

The Italian version was introduced, which has been shown to be reliable and valid French researchers have also performed a CFA using the CSQ-Revised, and achieved satisfactory results consistent with our findings and those of Riley and Robinson 89.

Our findings also suggest that the CSQ-Revised and CPCI have different constructs, thus highlighting their distinctive questionnaige to multidisciplinary pain programs and confirming the intent of the original developers of the CPCI to create a questionnaire that investigated previously ignored coping strategies CFA met all queztionnaire the fit criteria confirming the model on the present sample Table 2 7.


The CSQ-Revised was initially administered to 50 quesgionnaire with chronic nonspecific pain to probe what was meant by each item and the chosen response. However, the CSQ-Revised version has yet to be adapted and psychometrically analyzed in Italian subjects, thus limiting the opportunities for researchers and clinicians to share the validated outcomes of chronic pain patients.

The adapted questionnaire is reproduced in Appendix 1. For each subscale, the answers are summed and divided by the number of items for which a response was provided.

It responded satisfactorily to the requirements of relevance and completeness, and appeared to be fully applicable to everyday clinical practice. Increasing attention is being devoted to cognitive-behavioural measures to improve interventions for chronic pain. Le persone sviluppano strategie per fronteggiare e gestire il dolore che sentono. The Chronic Pain Coping Inventory Strateggies patients were asked about any ceq they encountered and all of the data questionnsire checked for missing or multiple responses.

The median duration of pain was 24 months range three to months. The translated versions were submitted to an expert committee of bilingual Italian and English speaking clinicians, methodologists, psychometricians and the translators.

The clping committee re-evaluated all of the findings, although no further adjustment was required.

The questionnaire was translated into Italian using a process of forward-backward translation involving four translators.

Assessing depressive symptoms questionnaaire cultures: There were several limitations to the present study. The aim of the present study was to describe the cultural adaptation of the CSQ-Revised and its validation in a large sample of subjects with chronic pain to enable its use qufstionnaire Italian-speaking subjects in Italy and abroad.

Third, additional studies of strategiees properties of CSQ-Revised using modern test theory methods, such as Rasch measurement theory or item response theory, are recommended because only classical test theory psychometric properties were evaluated.

Inan exploratory factor analysis of a large sample of subjects with chronic pain suggested a six-factor solution that was relatively supportive of the original scales, and showed satisfactory reliability and construct validity 7.
