Female Patient and Physician Communication and Discussion of Gynecological Health Care Issues.
Wheeless, Virginia Eman
Southern Speech Communication Journal, v42 n2 p198-211 Win 1987
Indicates that a female patient's trust in, receptivity to, and communication apprehension regarding her physician constitute significant predictors of her (1) likelihood of discussing health care issues, (2) knowledge of gynecological health needs, and (3) feelings toward the gynecologist during examination. Finds that the physician's gender does not significantly affect patient response. (JD)
