Sciamanna, Christopher N.; Zampi, Amy; Weinstock, Martin A.
American Journal of Health Promotion, v16 n6 p319-22 Jul-Aug 2002
Compared the sun protection behaviors (SPBs) of physicians and patients from a Rhode Island teaching hospital. Survey data indicated that physicians and patients did not differ in their overall use of SPBs, though they differed in their regular use of specific SPBs (physicians were more likely to use sunscreen, while patients were more likely to wear long-sleeved shirts or stay in the shade).
