TORRESANI, ME et al. Variables related to the quality of care nutritional consulting and perception of success in treatments for body weight control. Diaeta [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.136, pp. 10-17. ISSN 1852-7337.

Objective: to determine the association between variables related to the quality of care nutritional consulting and the patients´ perception of success in treatments for body weight control in a group of women over 20 years old, residents of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires or Greater Buenos Aires. Methodology: Observational, cross-correlation design. Simple random sample of 97 women who attended, at least once, for nutritional consulting led by a registered dietitian. A voluntary and structured survey was carried out analyzing as dependent variable the perception of success of the nutritional treatment and as independent variables three variables related to quality of care: the professional's listening skills (good, fair or poor), adequate instructions based on tastes, habits and digestive tolerance and type of literature given in the consulting-room. Statistical analysis was performed using the SPSS 15.0, applying difference of proportions and OR with p <0.05. Results: Of the total sample studied, 61.9% perceived as successful their latest treatment for weight control. For the majority, the physical place where consulting took place was adequate (95.9%), time spent was enough (89.7%), and the professional´s listening skills were good (75.3%). The perception of success was significantly associated with good listening skills by the professional (p = 0.0001) and adequate instructions based on tastes and habits of the patients (p = 0.002). No association was observed between adequate instructions to digestive tolerance and the type of literature used and the perception of success in the consulting room Conclusions: the perception of success in the nutritional treatment was significantly associated with good listening skills by the professional and adequate instructions as to the patients´ preferences and eating habits.
