To analyze the correlation between self-efficacy, self-esteem and adherence to treatment with the Charing Cross Venous Ulcer Questionnaire in people with Venous Ulcer in Primary Health Care. This is a cross-sectional, descriptive and quantitative study, carried out between February and September 2014 at the Primary Health Care of the city of Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, with 101 people with VU. A structured form of sociodemographic, health and care characterization; Charing Cross Venous Ulcer Questionnaire; Self-efficacy Scale for Chronic Pain; Multidimensional Therapeutic Adherence Scale; Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale were used to collect data. The data were tabulated in Microsoft Excel and exported to the Statistical Package for Social Sciences 20.0, in which descriptive and inferential analyses were performed. There were weak to moderate correlations, mostly positive, with significance only between the "emotional state" of Quality of Life and the "Healthy lifestyle" of adherence to treatment. About the correlations of the Charing Cross Venous Ulcer Questionnaire domains with the domains of self-efficacy, self-esteem, there were negative correlations between weak and moderate and significant. Self-efficacy, self-esteem and adherence to treatment showed a correlation with Quality of Life. There is a need to address them in the health evaluation of the person with VU, seeking to impact on a better quality of life.
