  1. The influence of patients'hopes of receiving a prescription on doctors'perceptions and the decision to prescribe : a questionnaire survey.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives 

    To measure patients'expectations of receiving prescriptions and general practitioners'perceptions of these expectations and to determine the factors most closely associated with the decision to prescribe.

    Design 

    Questionnaires were completed by patients waiting to see their general practitioners, and by their doctors immediately after the consultations.

    Setting 

    Four non-fundholding group practices in southeast London.

    Subjects 

    544 unselected patients consulting 15 general practitioners.

    Main outcome measures 

    Doctors'perceptions of patients'expectations ; doctors'decisions to prescribe.

    Results 

    67% (354/526) of patients hoped for a prescription ; doctors perceived that 56% (305/542) of patients wanted prescriptions ; and doctors wrote prescriptions in 59% (321/543) of consultations.

    Despite the close agreement between patients'hopes and doctors'perceptions, 25% (89/353) of patients hoped for a prescription but did not receive one.

    In 22%) (68/313) of consultations in which prescriptions were written, they were not strictly indicated on purely medical grounds, and in only 66% (202/306) of consultations in which prescriptions were written were they both indicated and hoped for.

    Doctors'perceptions of patients'expectations were the strongest predictor of the decision to prescribe, but the final regression model also included patients'hopes and ethnic group, and the doctor's feeling of being pressurised. (...)
