Accuracy of doctors' anthropometric measurements in general practice

Published in Swiss Medical Weekly. 2015, vol. 145, p. w14115
Abstract There is increasing pressure on general practitioners (GPs) to identify patients with abdominal obesity in order to reduce the life-threatening consequences of this condition in the population. We aimed to confirm previous findings on the inaccuracy of anthropometric measurements performed by GPs in an academic primary care clinic and to assess the effect of theoretical training to improve the quality of these measurements.
