DSM-IV Primary Care Version

J. Sloan Manning

Published: February 15, 1997

Article Abstract

The introduction of the DSM-IV Primary Care Version (DSM-IV-PC) represents a quantum leap in the continuing effort to close the gap between theory and practice in primary care psychiatry. A principal reason for this leap is the DSM-IV-PC’s long overdue emphasis on clinical process rather than specialtyspecific jargon and attention to syndromal criteria. The multidisciplinary task force responsible for the development of the document has met most of its stated goals.
