It was reported in the August 1998 edition of Diabetes Care that the attitudes, knowledge and practice patterns of primary care physicians in delivering effective treatment to patients with diabetes was up to standards, but could still make room for improvement.
Most physicians surveyed say they perform blood pressure and foot inspections at every office visit, and do a GHb test annually. Surprisingly, when asked what hinders proper diabetes care, most doctors blamed patients' lack of compliance with suggested treatments.
The current survey of primary care physicians' self-reported care of diabetic patients is the first survey to be conducted since the publication of the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial.
