A New Method of Assessing the Interpersonal Skills of Surgeons.
Burchard, Kenneth W.; Rowland-Morin, Pamela A.
Academic Medicine, v65 n4 p274-76 Apr 1990
Development of a behavioral test of surgeons' interpersonal skills involved applying a rating scale to videotape recordings of physician interactions with a gall bladder patient, at three intervals. Quality of communication was found to vary over the intervals. The instrument used was more sensitive to variation than a comparison scale. (Author/MSE)
