Second National Workshop in Nutrition Designs and Methods
Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition’s Second National Workshop in Nutrition Designs and Methods was held at the Park Village Resort in Kathmandu from April 22-27, 2019. The workshop was organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Tribhuvan University Institute of Medicine, Patan Academy of Health Sciences, Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
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 letter of Intent for 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 designs and methods in nutrition research topics of their interest with hands-on experience in developing a letter of intent. Topics on research question that answered a gap in current scientific knowledge in Nepal, articulation of specific aims, objectives and/or hypothesis, defining outcomes of interest, determining appropriate study designs, methodology and assessment methods were covered.
