Attitudes of general practitioners and child psychiatrists to treatment methods

  • Theodore I.R. Mutale (a1)
Abstract

The Introduction of the new contract and budget-holding practices hat given general practitioners more say in the care given to their patients by secondary care units and other providers of health core. It is therefore important that the views of GPs be taken into account when service requirements are determined. This study compares the treatment choices of GPs with those of consultant child psychiatrists in the management of childhood psychological disorder. The doctors were also asked to indicate treatments they thought were harmful or ineffective. To the best of my knowledge this is the first UK study to compare child psychiatrists' and GPs' treatment priorities.
