subjective data collection

subjective data collection

the process in which data relating to the patient's problem are elicited from a patient or a patient's family. The data are retrieved from the patient's description of an event rather than from a physical examination, which provides objective data. The interviewer encourages a full description of the onset, the course, and the character of the problem and any factors that aggravate or ameliorate it. Compare objective data collection.
