The ability of trainee general practitioners to identify psychological distress among their patients.
It is argued that a general practitioner's ability to make accurate ratings of psychological distress is partly determined by the rate at which patients emit cues that are indicative of such distress.
This study addresses the behaviours of doctors which influence the rates at which patients emit such cues.
Consultations were videotaped involving six General Practice Vocational Trainees, three of them poor, and three of them able identifiers of emotional illness.
Consultations were selected so that each trainee was rated interviewing 4 patients with low GHQ scores, and 4 patients with high scores.
