Few studies have examined whether recording of diabetes on death certificates is associated with the antemortem relationship between the decedent and the certifying physician. One study of 292 diabetic decedents with histories of ischemic heart disease found that if the certifying physician was the personal physician, diabetes was recorded 48% of the time, versus 33% for another physician and 8% for a medical examiner (2). Another study found that for 104 patients with diabetes who died in the hospital, there was no relationship between the level of training of the certifying physician and the recording of diabetes (7). Our objective was to examine whether primary care physicians (PCPs) are more likely than other physicians to record diabetes on the death certificates of decedents with known diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS The Translating Research Into Action for Diabetes (TRIAD) study has been described in detail elsewhere (10). This study was limited to the Michigan study site. Patients aged 18 years were sampled (n = 1,650). The institutional review board approved the study, and all participants provided informed consent. A baseline survey was administered to . . .
