Why Won't Physicians Make Nursing Home Visits?
Mitchell, Janet B.; Hewes, Helene T.
Gerontologist, v26 n6 p650-54 Dec 1986
Michigan physicians (N=930) were asked whether they made nursing home visits and if not, why not. A typology was developed to differentiate among various physician types based on reasons given. Six physician types were found, each identified with a different policy lever that could be used to encourage them to treat nursing home patients. (Author)
