Vision

 

The UK & Ireland Regional Network believe that working together to improve nutrition education, practice and research in health and social care, public health and education increases professional engagement in nutrition and improves patient and population wellbeing

Mission

 

The UK & Ireland network brings together professionals from different disciplines with expertise in nutrition education, research, and practice. Through working collaboratively, harnessing collective expertise, and listening to the voices and opinions of people from different communities, the UK & Ireland network will support sustainable and equitable change and improvement in food systems from production to consumption, and in health and social care practice.

KPI – hosting of regional meetings with representation from network members and key stakeholders with the invited representation of key stakeholders, that address the 2021/22 priorities identified by the UK & Ireland Network.

  • To encourage innovative research and practice that addresses selected nutrition issues that affect people in communities, and in health and social context.

  • To synthesise and disseminate cross-border nutrition policy and guidance, research and evidence-informed practise through the development of briefing papers.

KPI - to collate and present case studies of nutrition research, education, or implementation best practice at the regional meetings in England, Wales, Scotland & N. Ireland, and  Ireland 

  • Provide education meetings and dissemination of research in nutrition education and practice to the devolved countries of the United Kingdom, and input to iKANN (International Knowledge Application Network in Nutrition 2025) and BMJ Nutrition, Prevention and Health.
