Diabetes Metab Res Rev. 2010 Sep;26(6):446-7. doi: 10.1002/dmrr.1110.


Damin and colleagues in this issue of DMRR Assessing quality of diabetes care and its variation in Aboriginal community health centres in Australia reviewed the quality of diabetes care and its variation among Aboriginal community health centres. They assessed partitioning of variation attributable to health centre and individual patient characteristics. The results demonstrated wide variation across different categories of diabetes care measures and across centres.
