First National Workshop in Design and Implementation of Intervention Studies
In collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Child Health Division, Tribhuvan University Institute of Medicine, Patan Academy of Health Sciences, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition conducted the First National Workshop titled “Design and Implementation of Intervention Studies”, in Nagarkot, Nepal from March 19-24, 2018. The one-week intensive workshop was part of an ongoing support from the Innovation lab to build institutional and human capacity in the realms of nutrition, health, food security and agriculture.
The workshop objectives:
- To learn basic concepts of research design, processes, and components.
- To gain substantive knowledge on the developmental and structural processes in preparing a research protocol.
- To identify a research question with measurable precise objectives, determine the appropriate research design, data collection, and analysis methods to answer the research question.
Participants were exposed to the theory of designing and implementing an intervention study with hands-on experience in developing an intervention research grant proposal. Topic areas included the development of a research question that answers a gap in current scientific knowledge in Nepal, articulation of a hypothesis, defining outcomes of interest, determining appropriate study designs, intervention methodology and assessment methods.
