Psychosocial Concerns in the Medical Encounter: A Comparison of the Interactions of Doctors with Their Old and Young Patients.
Greene, Michele G.; And Others
Gerontologist, v27 n2 p164-69 Apr 1987
Using a newly developed coding method, the Geriatric Interaction Analysis system, the interactions of doctors with a matched sample of older and younger patients were audiotaped and scored. Patients and doctors raised fewer psychosocial issues in interviews with older patients than with younger patients. Doctors also responded less well to these issues when elderly patients raised them.
