Determinants of perceived health status of medical outpatients.
The aim of this study was to examine the relative contributions made by medical morbidity, psychiatric disorder, functional status, and hypochondriacal attitudes to medical patients' opinions of their overall health status.
The study was conducted in the general medical clinic of a large academic teaching hospital.
Consecutive clinic visitors on randomly selected days were screened with a hypochondriasis self-report questionnaire, since the overall project was designed as a study of hypochondriasis.
