Determining Consequential Factors in Diagnosis.
Carter, Homer L. J.
The acts of diagnosis described in this paper aid in the determination of relevant, material, and consequential factors in a clinical study. These acts, which are not necessarily sequential, are identification, assumption, rejection, acceptance, discovery, explanation, prediction, and verification. The clinician with this model in mind will be able to determine more objectively what is relevant, material, and consequential. Insignificant details can be swept aside, and a clear-cut sequence of factors leading to the disability can become apparent. All of this should be completed before treatment and instructional measures are initiated. An illustrative case study is reported. (Author/BS)
