  1. Comparing self-reported and physician-reported medical history.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors compared self-reported medical history and medication use in a cataract case-control study of 1,380 persons (1985-1989) in Boston, Massachusetts, with information from the participants'physicians.

    Under and overreporting varied by condition and type of medication.

    A self-reported history of hypertension had the highest sensitivity (91%), and diabetes history had the highest specificity (97%). Among different medications investigated, self-reported antihypertensive medication use was the most sensitive (88%), while self-reported use of insulin was the most specific (99%). Differences between patient-and physician-reported frequencies were very small, except for arthritis (15%) and regular aspirin use (21%).
