Attitudes and Approaches of Nutrition and Dietetics Department Students TowardComplementary and Alternative Medical Treatment Methods: A Cross-SectionalStudy

Öz:
Objective: To evaluate the attitudes and approaches of nutrition and dietetics department students about complementaryand alternative medical treatment (CAM) methods. Material and Methods: This study was carried out on 194 volunteer students studying in the Department of Nutrition andDietetics at the Faculty of Health Sciences of Ondokuz Mayıs University. The data were analyzed using the SPSS 22.0statistical software package and the categorical data was given as percentage. Results: Of the 194 students participating in the study 83% were women. The percentage of students who knew aboutCAM methods were 67.5%. It was determined that sources recommending CAM were mainly nurse-midwife (37.6%),neighbors, and relatives (28.4%), and the most common reasons for using CAM were for general health (46.9%). Amongmethods, most commonly used were exercise (72.7%), praying (68.6%), plants/herbal medicine use (55.7%), daydreaming(48.5%), vitamin/diet supplement (42.8%) and music therapy (33.5%). The percentage of students who preferred CAM overtraditional treatment was 27.3%. Conclusion: The majority of students have knowledge about CAM methods, their level of knowledge is not very high, theymostly do not learn this information in undergraduate education. Often, students use these methods to improve their overallhealth. In addition, it is thought-provoking that students tend to CAM rather than modern medicine despite receiving healtheducation. Considering that some CAM methods can affect nutrition and health, it is thought that it will be important toraise awareness of students studying in this field.

Beslenme ve Diyetetik Bölümü Öğrencilerinin Tamamlayıcı ve Alternatif Tıbbi Tedavi Yöntemlerine Yönelik Tutum ve Yaklaşımları: Kesitsel Bir Çalışma

Öz:
Amaç: Beslenme ve Diyetetik bölümü öğrencilerinin tamamlayıcı ve alternatif tıbbi tedavi (TAT) yöntemlerine ilişkin tutum ve yaklaşımlarını değerlendirmektir. Gereç Yöntem: Bu çalışma Ondokuz Mayıs Üniversitesi Sağlık Bilimleri Fakültesi Beslenme ve Diyetetik Bölümü'nde öğrenim gören 194 gönüllü öğrenci üzerinde gerçekleştirilmiştir. Veriler SPSS 22.0 istatistiksel yazılım paketi kullanılarak analiz edilmiş ve kategorik veriler yüzde olarak verilmiştir. Bulgular: Araştırmaya katılan 194 öğrenciden %83'ü kadındı. TAT yöntemlerini bilen öğrencilerin yüzdesi 67.5'tir. TAT'ı öneren kaynaklar arasında; hemşire ebe (%37.6), komşular ve akrabalar (%28.4) olduğu ve TAT kullanımının en yaygın nedeninin genel sağlık (%46.9) üzerine etkisi olduğu belirlenmiştir. En sık kullanılan yöntemler arasında egzersiz (%72.7), dua (%68.6), bitkiler/bitkisel ilaç kullanımı (%55.7), hayal kurma (%48.5), vitamin/diyet takviyesi (%42.8) ve müzik terapisi (%33.5) vardı. Geleneksel tedaviye göre TAT'ı tercih eden öğrencilerin yüzdesi 27.3 idi. Sonuç: Öğrencilerin çoğunluğu TAT yöntemleri hakkında bilgi sahibidir, bilgi düzeyleri çok yüksek değildir ve çoğunluklabu bilgileri lisans eğitiminde öğrenmemişlerdir. Genellikle, öğrenciler genel sağlıklarını iyileştirmek için bu yöntemlerikullanmaktadır. Buna ek olarak, öğrencilerin sağlık eğitimi almasına rağmen modern tıptan ziyade TAT’'ye eğilimlioldukları düşünülmektedir. Bazı TAT yöntemlerinin beslenme ve sağlığı etkileyebileceği göz önüne alındığında, bu alandaöğrenim gören öğrencilerin farkındalığının artırılmasının önemli olacağı düşünülmektedir.
