dc.description.abstractContext: The importance of nutrition in preventing and managing chronic disease is well recognised. Primary care is heralded as the ideal setting to assist patients have a healthy diet. Enduring claims suggest that general practitioners (GPs) provide inadequate nutrition care to patients, with minimal clear gains over recent times. A new way of examining this problem will inform novel strategies to support GPs to provide nutrition care. Objective: To critically synthesise contemporary evidence on nutrition care provided to patients by GPs. Design: An integrative review was used to identify all relevant qualitative and quantitative studies from 2012 to 2018. Sixteen studies were analysed thematically using meta-synthesis informed by the COM-B model of behaviour (capability, motivation and opportunity). Setting: United States, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, United Kingdom, Lebanon, Australia and New Zealand. Participants: GPs. Findings: GPs perceive that they lack the capability required to provide effective nutrition care to patients. GPs’ motivation for nutrition differed based on patient and provider characteristics and their amount of perceived opportunity. GPs’ attitudes were clearly influenced by the motivation of educators and opportunity to provide nutrition care afforded by professional and governmental policies. Implication(s) for practice: Given that healthy eating is an integral component of disease prevention and management, it is critical that GPs develop sufficient capability to provide nutrition care. Strategies that enhance GPs’ capability, motivation and opportunity to provide nutrition care should be prioritised to support high-quality care for patients.
