Van der Pasch, M.; Verhaak, P. F. M.
Patient Education and Counseling, v33 n2 p97-112 Feb 1998
Explores the relationships between the physician's ability to recognize mental illness, the communication style, the subsequent treatment, and the patient's recovery. Two databases are used: (1) videotaped consultations by GPs; (2) a 1-year follow-up study of patients whose complaints were considered "mainly psychosocial." Positive, negative and absent relationships are reported and discussed. (Author/EMK)
