Portuguese term or phrase:ele seria o responsável, apenas, pelo preenchimento desse campo
This is a list of changes that have been introduced in the standardized death certificate (see text below). I'm not sure if it means "to disabuse the physician of the impression that...":
he/she is responsible **only** for filling out this field
he/she is **at least** responsible for filling out this field
he/she is **not the only person** responsible for filling out this field
None of these makes sense to me in the context, which is:
+ substituição do nome do campo VI, de “Atestado Médico” para “Condições e Causas de Morte”, com o objetivo de afastar, do médico, o entendimento de que ele seria o responsável, apenas, pelo preenchimento desse campo
he/she is responsible only for filling out this field
Explanation: I think your first option is correct. It seems the doctor has more responsibilty that only filling in this one field, and here it is referring to disabusing him from this false impression.
Does that seem to make sense in the context of the whole certificate?

he/she is not the only person responsible for filling out this field
Explanation: As I said before, if they changed the name from "Atestado Médico" to "Condições e Causas de Morte" it is so that the doctor won't think only he has the right or obligation to fill out that part of the death certificate.
