dc.description.abstract The problem of this study was to determine health care professionals' opinions and practices concerning foodborne illness and food safety education during prenatal care. Data were collected from Indiana health care professionals using a mailed questionnaire. The results found that 71.7% of respondents do not provide foodborne illness and food safety education during prenatal care, however, 80.6% would like to. Most of the respondents indicated that they do not have the time (71.4%), resources (57 1%), or knowledge (25.7%) to provide this information to patients. Many of the respondents indicated that they have not received information on foodborne illness during pregnancy and are unaware of the recommendations to provide this information during prenatal care. The opinion questions found that most agree that foodborne illness can be serious in pregnancy and would like to learn more about the risks of foodborne illness to pregnant women and the fetus.
