[2nd International Nursing Research Conference for the World Academy of Nursing Science - Presentation] INTRODUCTION:  This communication aims to present some results of  the 1st phase of a broader research study. At this stage we intend to know the quality of life, coping, self-efficacy and implications of chronic pain in people's lives. 
METHOD: To characterize the people who live with chronic pain was used the Brief Pain Inventory, the Chronic  Pain Questionnaire of Coping, the Chronic Pain Self-Efficacy Scale and Quality Life SF36-v2. 115 persons who used the Pain Unit of a Local Health Unit of the north of Portugal, from August 2008 to February 2009, answered to these questionnaires. Data were analyzed using the computer program PASW Statistics 18.
RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: The participants are mostly women, with a mean age of 53 years, with low education, no work activity on, with chronic pain for over a year, with the most prevalent musculoskeletal pain. Most attended the Pain Unit in follow up consultations and expresses being very satisfied with pain control. It was possible to characterize the pain of these persons, coping strategies used to cope with chronic pain, perceived self-efficacy and the implications of pain on their quality of life. The results permitted to characterize the population with chronic pain and serve as a basis for building and the development of a nursing model for monitoring the person with chronic pain.
