TRONCOSO P, Claudia; CONTRERAS C, Natalia  y  GONZALEZ C, Solange. Adherence to nutritional check-up in men with chronic diseases. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2016, vol.43, n.1, pp.12-17. ISSN 0717-7518.

Introduction: One of the goals presented by the Cardiovascular Health Program (CHP) in Chile is the reduction of risk factors asso-ciated with metabolic syndrome. A part of the monitoring is achieved through check-ups and inquiries carried out by a multidisciplinary team, in which a nutritionist takespart. Objective: Interpret theperception of male adults, patients of the Boca Sur Cesfam and users of CHP, on the factors promoting attendance to nutritional check-ups. Subjects and methods: Using an interpretative quali-tative paradigm with a phenomenological approach, theoretical saturation was acomplished during the tenth interview to male adults who fulfiulled the selection criteria of the study. Results: It is interpreted that the interviewees have various motives and interests in attending nutritional check-ups of the CHP. The most prominent ones are taking care of theirgeneral health, and control of the underlying disease. Family, especially their partners; the relationship built between the nutritionist and the patient, strenghtened by communication and trust are found to have a positive effect on the patient attending regularly to check-ups. Conclusions: That adherence to nutritional check-ups is favored by motivated male adults who seek to improve their quality of life attending a nutritional consultation, usually encouraged by their families, especially their spouses or partners. Also, when the relationship established with the professional helping them is perceived as positive. Friends are not considered influential on the attendance and monitoring of their underlying disease.
