Current concepts relating psychological variables to health recognise the key role of coping processes as mediating variables between stress and illness, yet few reliable and valid instruments exist for the assessment of coping with physical health problems.

The CHIP inventory may be administered over the course of a specific health problem to help determine the coping strategies used at different times in the development and/or treatment of the problem.

It has also been used effectively among patients with:

  • chronic pain
  • cancer
  • asthma
  • diabetes
  • as well as with other health problems such as sports injuries.

The CHIP is hand scored using simple QuikScore forms.
