The primary care physician and the psychiatric epidemiologist: a symbiotic service research partnership

, : The primary care physician and the psychiatric epidemiologist: a symbiotic service research partnership. Israel Journal of Psychiatry and Related Sciences 22(4): 257-264

Many patients presenting themselves for diagnosis and treatment in primary care settings have in addition to their somatic symptoms significant emotional or psychiatric problems. The degree to which physicians in such settings detect psychiatric problem is very variable. The sensitivity and specificity of screening questionnaires is problematic. Despite these flaws, a developmental program which entails the use of brief screening (self-report) questionnaires is advocated. Such a symbiotic service research partnership would result in improved screening questionnaires of value to both patients and the primary care physician.
