SORIANO, J.  and  MONSALVE, V.. Validation of the reduced chronic pain coping questionnaire (CAD-R). Rev. Soc. Esp. Dolor [online]. 2004, vol.11, n.7, pp.27-34. ISSN 1134-8046.

Coping has been turned over the last decades in one of the most important topics to board the patient with chronic pain. Given the importance of considering and evaluating the different forms that the individual has to cope with pain, different instruments in the last decades have been developed to evaluate the above mentioned dimension. The coping pain questionnaire (in Spanish, CAD), initially composed by 31 items, gathers 6 factors: autoaffirmation, Look for information, religion, distraction, catharsis and mental autocontrol. In this study the length of the CAD diminishes, proposing a small version of the same (CAD-R). 364 subjects were evaluated by the psychology service of the Multidisciplinary Pain Treatment Unit of the Valencia University General Hospital. Of the original questionnaire of 31 items (CAD), there was eliminated a whole of 7 items remaining reduced to a whole of 24 items (CAD-R). Assessing the validity of this new version designed for chronic pain patients with a sample of Spanish population, its consistence and stability are analyzed again, and the relationships between coping and affect are defined to determine the most adaptative coping skills.
