Abstract

A preliminary survey undertaken before compiling a geriatric register showed that about 90% of the information on the practice files for patients over 65 was accurate. It is emphasized that such a register--which should be as accurate and up-to-date as possible--is important for the successful organization of a preventive geriatric clinic, or to any project designed to "screen" a defined population.
