Title:
The attitudes of student nurses towards obese patients: A questionnaire study exploring the association between perceived causal factors and advice giving.
Authors:
Nicholls, Wendy; Pilsbury, Linda; Blake, Marcia; Devonport, Tracey J
Abstract:
Nurses acting in primary care roles are central in addressing obesity as a public health priority. Nurses with a lower Body Mass Index have been shown to have negative attitudes towards obesity. Additionally, where the patient is perceived as being responsible for their excess weight, a negative attitude may also be held. The extent to which negative attitudes may influence the advice provided by nurses to obese patients is unknown.
