Figure 1. From: Patient and physician related factors of adherence to evidence based guidelines in diabetes mellitus type 2, cardiovascular disease and prevention: a cross sectional study.

Causes of deviations from the guidelines. Percentages are percent of all Quality Indicators analyzed. Patient’s view: “Falsely discontinued” is defined as a stop of treatment triggered by the physician despite guidelines recommending a continuation of the therapy (e.g. discontinuation of statin therapy after reaching target values for LDL-cholesterol). Physician’s view: “Falsely not indicated general practitioner (GP)” signifies that the GP never started therapy due to e.g. a knowledge gap and the drug in fact was indicated. “Falsely not indicated specialist / hospital (s/h)” signifies that a certain therapy was not initiated or recommended by specialists or physicians in the hospital and the GP adhered to this recommendation when in fact there was an indication for the drug.
