Re-conceptualizing interruptions in physician-patient interview: Co-operative and intrusive
Unformatted Document Text:  Interruption Patterns 16 r (13) = 1.0, p < .0001 and r (17) = .99, p < .0001, for the M/M and M/F combinations respectively. In the M/M group, physicians took 73.54 turns ( SD = 38.54) and patients took 72.85 turns (SD = 37.92). Paired samples t-test showed that the difference was statistically significant, t (1, 12) = 2.92, p < .05. In the M/F group, physicians took 90.88 turns (SD = 37.04) and patients took 90.58 turns (SD = 37.26). These means were not significantly different. In the male physician/male patient (M/M) group, the mean time for an interview was 7.04 minutes, while in the male physician/female patient (M/F) group, the mean time for an interview was 9.42 minutes. The difference was statistically significant, t (1, 28) = 2.16, p < .05. In terms of speaking time (interview time minus physical examination time), there was a statistically significant difference between the M/M and M/F groups, t (1, 28) = 2.22, p < .05. The M/F group (M = 549.17, SD = 176.45) talked more than the M/M group (M = 399.76, SD = 190.97). Means for speaking time was not statistically significant between physicians and patients. The means were 250.43 (SD = 128.28) and 234.66 (SD = 95.94) for physicians and patients respectively. However, the correlation between physicians’ and patients’ speaking time was statistically significant, r (30) = .49, p < .01. There was no statistically significant difference between physicians and patients in their speaking time in either the M/M or the M/F groups. Interestingly, there was no correlation between the mean number of words spoken by physicians and patients in either the M/M or the M/F group. In the M/M group, the mean number of words spoken by physicians and patients were 646.76 (SD = 510.94) and 605.84 (SD = 329.66) respectively. In the M/F group, the mean number of words spoken by physicians and patients were 774.29 (SD = 339.47) and 725.58 (SD = 345.17) respectively. There was no statistically significant difference between the mean number of words spoken by physicians and patients in either the M/M or the M/F group. When the number of words of physicians and patients were combined, the M/F group spoke more words (M = 749.94, SD = 338.01) than the M/M group (M = 626.30, SD = 421.79), but this difference was not statistically significant.

r (13) = 1.0, p < .0001 and r (17) = .99, p < .0001, for the M/M and M/F combinations
respectively. In the M/M group, physicians took 73.54 turns ( SD = 38.54) and patients took
72.85 turns (SD = 37.92). Paired samples t-test showed that the difference was statistically
significant, t (1, 12) = 2.92, p < .05. In the M/F group, physicians took 90.88 turns (SD = 37.04)
and patients took 90.58 turns (SD = 37.26). These means were not significantly different.
In the male physician/male patient (M/M) group, the mean time for an interview was 7.04
minutes, while in the male physician/female patient (M/F) group, the mean time for an interview
was 9.42 minutes. The difference was statistically significant, t (1, 28) = 2.16, p < .05. In terms
of speaking time (interview time minus physical examination time), there was a statistically
significant difference between the M/M and M/F groups, t (1, 28) = 2.22, p < .05. The M/F group
(M = 549.17, SD = 176.45) talked more than the M/M group (M = 399.76, SD = 190.97).
Means for speaking time was not statistically significant between physicians and patients.
The means were 250.43 (SD = 128.28) and 234.66 (SD = 95.94) for physicians and patients
respectively. However, the correlation between physicians’ and patients’ speaking time was
statistically significant, r (30) = .49, p < .01. There was no statistically significant difference
between physicians and patients in their speaking time in either the M/M or the M/F groups.
Interestingly, there was no correlation between the mean number of words spoken by
physicians and patients in either the M/M or the M/F group. In the M/M group, the mean number
of words spoken by physicians and patients were 646.76 (SD = 510.94) and 605.84 (SD =
329.66) respectively. In the M/F group, the mean number of words spoken by physicians and
patients were 774.29 (SD = 339.47) and 725.58 (SD = 345.17) respectively. There was no
statistically significant difference between the mean number of words spoken by physicians and
patients in either the M/M or the M/F group. When the number of words of physicians and
patients were combined, the M/F group spoke more words (M = 749.94, SD = 338.01) than the
M/M group (M = 626.30, SD = 421.79), but this difference was not statistically significant.
