abstract

  • The reliability and ease of use of DSM-III-R and the clinical and research versions of ICD-10 were assessed by 5 psychiatrists working in pairs. They diagnosed 60 patients. All 3 systems showed similar and high interrater and intersystem agreement for major diagnostic categories but not for subcategories. A number of implications of these results are discussed.
