Lifestyle and health behaviour change support by acupuncturists - Evidence Based Acupuncture


This study shows that acupuncturists’ support for lifestyle and health behaviour change (LHBC) for patients presenting with chronic conditions is high.

Reported typical support for LHBC was very high for chronic presentations (91.7% most/all of the time) and lower (though still fairly high) with acute presentations (67.9% most/all of the time). Practitioners were more likely to report supporting LHBC in acute presentations when they had more positive attitudes towards and felt better able to offer support for behaviour change.
