Psychiatric Assessment of Patients with "20th Century Disease".. 1985.
Stewart and Raskin ridicule patients by using straw men, sloppy sampling and hyperbole. Later, CMAJ editor told me it was the article for which they received the most complaints ever. Estimates range from 24,000 to 500,000 preventable Canadian deaths since the article was published.
University of Toronto's Donna Stewart resends offensive article in response to complaint.; 1988.
The problems with Stewart's 1985 CMAJ article are argued elsewhere in this bibliography. Her work was found in the social services rejection decisions of suicide victims. When her article was criticized, she apparently felt that re reading the article would do other than reinforce her offensiveness.
