Abstract

This research examined patterns of diabetic preventive care use among adults with diabetes, to determine whether these patterns varied according to respondents’ rural/urban residence or psychiatric status (i.e., the presence/absence of a mental health diagnosis). Specifically, we considered whether rural people with diabetes are less likely than urban peers to use diabetic preventive services; whether having a mental health diagnosis affects preventive service use among diabetics; and, whether rural/ urban differences in service use vary depending on the presence or absence of a mental health diagnosis.
