Psychiatrist and patient disagreement data

Share:

Description

Psychiatrists and their patients were surveyed in pairs regarding patient concerns and treatment. Each psychiatrist was asked whether each question item was relevant to their patient and each of their patients were asked the same. The data can be evaluated to answer the question of whether there was patient/doctor agreement in each item. The sample was 29 psychiatrists, each with 1-8 patients, for a total of N = 135 matched pairs.
