摘要Information concerning the nature of nutritionist-patient relationships is very limited. This qualitative and quantitative study examined nutritionist's skills, attributes, and beliefs towards nutrition counseling during a lifestyle modification intervention program, and whether this affected the patient's weight outcome. 24 nutrition consultations were observed during the program and the nutritionists were interviewed for their perception on practice (n = 4). A statistically significant difference was observed between the nutritionists in regard to patient's weight change after adjustment for age and baseline weight (p < 0.001). Key nutritionist skills identified that influenced weight outcome were meticulous investigation of the underlying obesity cause, identification of the subject's stage of change, and psychological support.
