Abstract

A survey of Illinois Dietetic Association members was done to determine demographic characteristics and continuing education (CE) preferences. Nine hundred and seven usable questionnaires (39%) were returned. Preferences were related to present position, age, number of years in job, year of highest degree, and route to ADA membership. A high preference for nutrition care topics was associated with a high number of respondents employed as clinical dietitians. Members from the Chicago metropolitan area differed from other members in preferences for CE topics and reasons for nonattendance at CE programs.
