Psychological Dysfunction and Physical Health among Elderly Medical Inpatients.
Rapp, Stephen R.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v56 n6 p851-55 Dec 1988
Evaluated 150 geriatric medical inpatients for psychological dysfunction. Found 27.3 percent of subjects had at least one psychological disorder and 15.3 percent of total sample had a depressive disorder. Comorbid depression was associated with greatest level of psychological distress and dysfunction, and with poorest physical health status. Findings suggest that comorbid depression is underrecognized and undertreated in primary care. (Author/NB)
