Nephrologists' and internal medicine physicians' expectations of renal dietitians and general clinical dietitians



Nephrologists' and internal medicine physicians' expectations of renal dietitians and general clinical dietitians



Journal of the American Dietetic Association 97(12): 1389-1393



A study examined nephrologists' and internal medicine physicians' expectations of renal dietitians and clinical dietitians. Subjects provided demographic information and used a 5-point Likert scale to note whether each of 14 job functions was appropriate for general clinical dietitians, renal dietitians, or both. Of 119 usable surveys, 70 were from nephrologists and 49 were from internists. At least 50 percent of respondents agreed that both types of dietitians should carry out nutrition assessments, determine patients' energy needs, assess medication-nutrition interactions, recommend diet and tube-feeding orders, instruct patients about physician-ordered diets, and teach nutrition concepts to hospital interns. Few physicians thought that either type of dietitian should order diets, tube feedings, or diet instructions.
