Traduction en anglais : Environmental problem in general practice a sentinel project.
How often do general practitioners have to deal with environmental problems ?
To answer this question 23 GPs recorded all relevant consultations during one year in Hamburg.
On an average, each of these GPs reported one contact once a month.
The spectrum of both patient complaints and environmental sources was broad.
The GP is less often convinced of a causal connection between both than the patient.
In most cases a referral was not necessary.
This study supports the assumption that the frequency of environmental problems in General Practice is - at least in the larger cities - lower than estimated from former studies and the self-image of general practice in Germany.
