An Alternative to Regional Development and Sustainable Health Tourism: Traditional and Complementary Medicine Practices

Year 2021, Volume 01, Issue 01, 8 - 18, 07.06.2021

Abstract

Purpose: The main purpose of this research is to evaluate the knowledge, attitudes and practices of the society towards traditional and complementary medicine practices of health tourism in line with the principles of regional development and sustainability, and to develop strategies for its development. Method: The family health center-based cross-sectional study design was employed. The universe of the study consisted of patients over the age of 18 and their relatives who received health services from two different family health centers. The data were collected from 390 people who agreed to participate in the study using face-to-face questionnaire technique. In the study, convenience sampling method was preferred. Descriptive statistics, independent sample t test, ANOVA test and structural equation modelling were applied. SPSS 26 and AMOS 24 package programs were used in the analysis of the data. Results: Path analysis revealed that the direct and indirect effects (positively mediated by attitude) of the level of knowledge towards traditional and complementary medicine on the use of traditional and complementary medicine had an acceptable index of fit. Conclusion: A great majority of participants had sufficient knowledge, a favorable attitude and good usage levels about the use, benefit, effectiveness, difference from modern medical treatment, reliability and methods of traditional and complementary medicine practices. The increase in knowledge level toward traditional and complementary medicine causes an increase in both the attitude towards traditional and complementary medicine and the use of traditional and complementary medicine, and the level of knowledge has both direct and indirect effects on the use of traditional and complementary medicine. Practice Implications: The Ministry of Health should provide more information to healthcare professionals and the community so that traditional and complementary medicine practices are preferred and recommended. In addition, this study showed that more attention should be paid to their education and support in order to increase the knowledge, attitudes and uses of the society towards traditional and complementary medicine.
