Patient Knowledge and the Content of the Consultation in General Practice
Bain, D. J. G.
Medical Education, 11, 5, 347-50, Sep 77
The relationship between verbal exchange in doctor-patient consultations and patients' comprehension has been measured by audio-tape recordings. The results provide objective evidence of differences in outcomes for similar presenting illnesses in different social groups, supporting the hypothesis that people in lower socioeconomic classes do not derive as much benefit from medical advice.
