The article presents a discussion on effective interview techniques for pediatricians. Dr. Morris Green published an article about interviews in the October 1984 issue of "Contemporary Pediatrics." Some of his tips include setting a time limit for interviews, using names of patients and their family to make it more personalize and note the strengths of child patients. The author mentioned that pediatric residency training does not include programs for interviewing. It is also noted that primary care pediatricians get little assistance from the medical community for meeting psychosocial needs of patients and families.
