Normal versus Pathological Aging: Knowledge of Family Practice Residents.
Beall, S. Colleen; And Others
Gerontologist, v36 n1 p113-17 Feb 1996
Family physicians may lack discriminatory ability to differentiate normal aging form disease states. To assess such ability, 53 aging-related indicators or symptoms were presented to 65 physicians in 3 family practice residency programs. Respondents classified each symptom as normal aging or disease. On average, residents classified 73.4% of symptoms correctly. Implications are discussed. (Author/KW)
