Abstract

Background. Although studies have identified physician beliefs that may cause them to avoid spiritual topics in the clinic leg, lack of time), it is unknown to what extent these beliefs predict behavior. The purpose of the present study tvas to identify physician beliefs about religion and medicinethat predict attention to religious issues in the clinic. Methods. The study was cross-sectional and correlational. Seventy-eight physicians completed a self-report survey of religious behavior in the clinicand beliefs about religion and medicine. Results. Most physicians do not initiate religious discussions with patients, though a majority accept a link between religion and health. Physician personal discomfort with addressing religious topics was the sole multivariate predictor of clinical religious behavior. Time, role definition, healthrelevance of religion, and physician religiousness were not significant predictors. Conclusions. Avoidance of religion in the clinic may be primarily belief-based. Future research is needed to examine the role of medical education increating and/or maintaining these beliefs.
