OCD is a common – and commonly missed – diagnosis
General Practice only allows limited time for mental health assessments. Did you know that patients with OCD are often high users of GP services?
Brief tests can provide your patient with a way to find out whether they have a high likelihood of having the condition. The key to diagnosing OCD is the presence of repetitive, unwanted thoughts, which may be violent, sexual, or other themes, such as contamination.
The OCI-R is a quick, if not fool-proof, way of getting an idea of your patient’s burden of OCD symptoms in just a minute or two.
