Interaction in medical consultations is of interest for many reasons and has long been thought an important variable in determining outcomes. Relatively few methods or instruments exist that attempt to access this phenomenon. The design, validation and possible application of a simple instrument to assess doctor-patient interaction are reported. Rapport and hostility may be related and we hypothesised that interaction between doctor and patient would be related in part to hostility.
