Résumé
There is little information regarding the impact of clinical nutrition training among medical residents. We aimed to evaluate the attitudes, self-perceived proficiency and knowledge of Swiss residents regarding clinical nutrition.
Cross-sectional study conducted between June and September 2014 in two medical education facilities located in Lausanne, Switzerland. Attitudes, self-perceived proficiency and knowledge regarding clinical nutrition were assessed by questionnaire.
Of the 88 internal medicine residents queried, 44 (50% response rate, 25 women, mean age 34 ± 4 years) answered the questionnaire. Three quarters of the residents were trained in Switzerland and one third reported receiving some training in clinical nutrition. Seven out of ten (70.5%) residents agreed that all doctors should know how to provide nutrition-based assessment, no matter what their specialty. Conversely, only one out of ten (11.4%) felt that physicians were adequately trained. No differences were found between genders or country of training regarding the answers provided.
Residents in Lausanne perceive clinical nutrition in primary care as a priority but lack the confidence and training to effectively use clinical nutrition in their daily practice.
