Abstract

Administered Italian versions of the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) and the Clinical Interview Schedule (CIS) to 120 consecutive attenders (aged 18+ yrs) at a general practice in Northern Italy. Findings indicate that the Italian versions of the GHQ and the CIS were feasible instruments for general-practice studies in Italy. GHQ misclassification rates and sensitivity and specificity values are presented for different cutoff scores, with a total score of 5 or more being the best discriminator between cases and noncases. The prevalence of confirmed cases in this sample was 47.5%, a rate higher than those reported in developed and developing countries.
