European study of the certification and coding of causes of death of six clinical case histories of diabetic patients.
This study was designed to investigate the large differences in diabetes mortality rates in Europe.
In each of the participating countries (France, Germany, The Netherlands, Northern Ireland-UK, Republic of Ireland, Romania, Scotland-UK, Switzerland) a random sample of certifying physicians was asked to certify the causes of death of six case histories which described the deaths of diabetic patients; the responses from an average of 220 physicians per country were analysed.
These registered causes were then coded nationally and the underlying cause was compared with that following a central recoding.
