Congruence of Health and Treatment Perceptions among Older Patients and Providers of Primary Care.
Rakowski, William; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v25 n1 p63-77 1987
Examined congruence of health ratings among older adult patients and their primary care physicians and nurses. Congruence ranged from 29 to 69 percent across 14 health and treatment questions (N=108 patient/provider pairs). Patients appeared to be more favorable on most questions, and questions with a present orientation exhibited greater congruence than those with a future orientation. (Author)
