Why does someone, sometimes during several years frequently visit a general practitioner? Although the cause can often be found in medical problems, sometimes the background of these frequent consultations remains unclear and the general practitioner wonders how to change this behaviour. Frans Smits explores (the background of) frequent attenders of the general practitioner and examines which factors lead to (long-term) frequent attendance, the relationship with the (medical) problems of the patient, the possible therapeutic approaches of frequent attenders and the impact of the workload of the general practitioner and the cost of healthcare.
