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.
