Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A catalogue of physical findings from patients on a geriatric ward run by a Family Practice Centre was developed for the use of both medical educators and students. The collection and organization of the data is described, as well as the ethical problems involved. Advantages to both teachers and students are discussed with respect to the teaching of physical diagnosis. An added benefit of producing and using a catalogue of this nature could be the changing of negative attitudes towards the geriatric patient.
