Designed to assess the use of coping strategies that are typically targeted for change in multidisciplinary pain treatment programs, the CPCI can be used as a treatment outcome measure, as a screening measure, and to document the necessity of treatment.
Assesses the use of coping strategies that contribute to patients’ pain adjustments
- Requires the individual to indicate the number of days during the past week he or she used each of 70 coping strategies to deal with pain.
- Illness-Focused Coping scales consist of Guarding, Resting, and Asking for Assistance; Wellness-Focused Coping scales consist of Exercise/Stretch, Relaxation, Task Persistence, Coping Self-Statements, Pacing, and Seeking Social Support.
- Can be used pretreatment and posttreatment to determine treatment effectiveness, as a pretreatment screener to determine treatment necessity, and during periodic reevaluations to document treatment progress.
Score, interpret results, and track changes with ease
- Norms are based on a sample of 527 patients with chronic pain.
- Reliable change scores help you determine the meaning of differences between scores obtained on two different testing occasions (e.g., pretreatment vs. posttreatment).
- The Profile Form includes a skyline for clinically elevated scores and treatment goals.
- Validity is discussed in terms of evidence based on intercorrelations among the scales, factor analysis, correlational analyses examining the relationships between CPCI scores and scores on related measures (i.e., coping, mental health/psychological functioning, physical dysfunction/disability, stages of change, pain attitudes/beliefs), and the use of the CPCI as a measure of treatment outcome.
