A nationwide mail survey was used to determine the degree to which primary-care physicians indicated that they practice the « core competencies » in clinical nutrition identified by Young et al (Am J Clin Nutr 1983;38:800-10).
We also surveyed the nutrition-related attitudes of these physicians.
Although the 3416 physicians who responded to the survey tended to report favorable attitudes toward using nutrition in their practice, these favorable attitudes were not consistent with their own reports of clinical performance.
Neither the positiveor negative-attitude score correlated highly with the reported behavior-practice score.
