Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

This study aims to test the validity and reliability of the Turkish form of Pain Coping Inventory (PCI) originally developed by Kraaimaat ve Evers (2003) and where pain coping is conceptualised as the composite of cognitive and behavioral active and passive strategies.

METHODS:

The sample consisted of a total of 279 participants with various pain complaints where 232 were women (83.2%) and 47 were men (16.8%). Besides the Turkish form of PCI, General Self-Efficacy Scale, Pain Self Efficacy Questionnaire-2, Ways of Coping Inventory and Pain Coping Questionnaire were used to determine criterion and convergent validity of the scale.

RESULTS:

The principal component analysis revealed that the scale had six factors of distraction, pain transformation, comforting thinking, worrying, resting and withdrawal. The internal consistency of the subscales varied between.53 ile.77. The correlations of the subscales of PCI with criterion and convergent validity scales were significant.

CONCLUSION:

The results suggest that PCI can be a useful tool for assessing coping strategies of pain patients with varying complaints of pain.
