Our internal consistency was satisfactory, thus confirming the extent to which the items assessed the same construct.

The sociodemographic characteristics of the participants are presented in Table 1. The Italian version was used, which has been shown to be reliable and valid 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. Our findings provide further evidence regarding the relationships between CSQ-Revised and CPCI, two widely used questionnaires that assess coping strategies in individuals with chronic pain.


The questionnaire was acceptable and easily understood, and could be self-administered in approximately 10 min. To identify any difficulties, inconsistencies or mistakes in translation, the committee explored the semantic, idiomatic and conceptual equivalence of the items and answers.
