[Implementation Research and Consulting in Nutrition]
Advisory Services are offered to external organisations, ranging from local, national and government bodies to academic and corporate organisations, facilitating them to undertake research, implementation and training and offering consultation related to nutrition.
We design and conduct education and implementation programmes for individuals or organisations. For example, if a medical or healthcare education provider wishes to incorporate nutrition in their curriculum, we provide direction on the course content as well as strategies for delivery and evaluation of impact. On the other hand, if an organisation wishes to strengthen nutrition-related knowledge and skills within their operations, we can drive implementation and change management in this area. We also work across the interdisciplinary domains underpinning food, nutrition and health. Impact evaluation comprises another area of strength within our advisory toolkit.
To seek implementation strategies for the embedding of good nutrition practices into education as well as food and health systems across sectors through action-orientated research and solution-focused consulting.
