  1. Patients'attitude toward consultations by a physician without a white coat in Japan.

    Article - En anglais

    Object To know how Japanese patients perceive their physicians without a white coat during consultations.

    Subjects and Methods The patients who visited a university clinic were divided into two groups : those seen by a physician in a white coat (the white-coat group) and those seen by a physician in private clothes (the private-clothes group).

    Questionnaires were distributed to the patients, which asked the tension and satisfaction of consultations as well as their preference for physician's attire.

    The answers of the white-coat group were compared with those of the private-clothes group.

    Results The percentage of new patients who felt tense during consultations was greater in the white-coat group (42%) than in the private-clothes group (33%). Seventy-one percent of the patients in the white-coat group preferred physicians in a white coat whereas only 39% preferred so in the private-clothes group (p<0.0001).

    However, the degree of patients'satisfaction for the consultation showed no statistical difference between the groups.

    Sixty-nine percent of the patients older than or equal to 70 years preferred a white coat while 52 percent of the patients younger than 70 years preferred so (p=0.002).

    Conclusion Physician's white coats did not influence the satisfaction with the consultations for most Japanese patients in a university clinic, although elderly patients as well as those seen by a physician in a white coat tended to prefer the white coat to the private clothes. (...)
