Complementary and integrative medicine (CIM) can be of great support to individuals suffering from psychiatric conditions; however, it is still rarely incorporated into clinical practice. Objective To examine the influences of psychosocial and sociodemographic factors on health-care professionals’ intention to use CIM in their psychiatric clinical practice. Method One-hundred-and-five participants completed a questionnaire developed from an adapted version of Triandis’ Theory of Interpersonal Behavior (TIB). Intentions to use CIM (yes or no) were analyzed using logistic regression models. Results The multivariate model retained three main factors: affect, perceived social norms, and conditions facilitating CIM. These predicted health-care professionals’ intention to use CIM with an AUC = 94.7%. Results underlined that positive affective attitudes towards CIM, feeling that CIM was congruent with professional and institutional goals, and having sufficient skills in CIM were essential to ensuring that health-care professionals would integrate CIM into their clinical practice.
