Comparison of Self and Health Professionals' Ratings of the Health of Community-Based Elderly.
Wilson, Cindy C.; Netting, F. Ellen
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v25 n1 p11-25 1987
Compared health need perceptions of 269 community-based elderly persons and 80 health-care professionals. Found high degree of incongruence between perceptions of elderly and of professionals. Health professionals were not good predictors of the health status of the elderly, and they did not accurately predict the barriers faced by the elderly seeking health care. (Author/NB)
