Abstract/Description: "The purpose of the study was to ascertain whether there were any marked differences when the study sample of fifty-seven patients (dichotomized by level of education attained) were distributed by each of the possible recommendations made by the Committee. The data for the study were collected from the hospital records of fifty-seven male patients to determine if there were marked differences on eleven social and medical descriptive items between twenty-four patients who had no high school education, and thirty-three patients who completed high school. Knowledge of marked differences not due to chance in the various social and medical descriptive items studied might be of help to the Committee in arriving at recommendations for patient care. The frequency distribution on sixteen possible Committee recommendations for patient care between the two sub-samples are given; to what extent the recommendations were followed also is indicated. If the data revealed differentiating items between the patients who completed high school and those who did not complete high school the Committee might show whether it would be feasible to make more recommendations for the patient population"--Introduction.
