Abstract (Summary)

Because of the considerable increase in the prevalence of diabetes over the past years, its effect on public and health care costs and the individual's quality of life require a closer look at the ways to promote better management for this disease. This study used the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCHS), a survey based on a sample of patient visits to physician offices. Each Year 3,000 physicians are randomly selected to provide data on approximately 30 patient visits over a 1-week period.

This project takes a closer look at what factors influenced the amount of health education prescription and referral that patients with diabetes received.
