Diagnostic protocols—A consultation tool still to be discovered
Fink W, Kamenski G, Konitzer M.
J Eval Clin Pract. 2017
Experienced primary care physicians handle most illnesses to everyone's satisfaction despite limited resources of time and means. However, cases can be multifaceted in that harmless-presenting symptoms may also be warning signals or an indicator of a health disorder that too infrequently presents in family practice to be diagnosed correctly. On the basis of these observations, RN Braun developed 82 diagnostic protocols for a structured recording of various complaints.

Although self-care for minor illnesses is recognized as an important component of primary health care, little is known about the prevalence and patterns of self-care for common colds across Europe. Drawing on data from 27 primary care sites of 14 countries, the cross-sectional COCO study describes the variety and pattern of reported self-care practices.

Patients with type 2 diabetes reveal different obstacles in living with the disease. The EGPRN initiated a qualitative research EUROBSTACLE to create a broadly conceptualized diabetes-related quality of life (DR-QoL) instrument. It led to the development of the diabetes obstacle questionnaire (DOQ), a five-point Likert-scaled measure, consisting of 78 items in eight scales.
