APPROACH

We prioritise nutrition education as a key strategy to achieve our vision, seeking to improve the health of individuals and populations by embedding nutrition into medical/healthcare systems.

We strive for medical, healthcare and public health professionals to have sufficient knowledge, skills and attitudes to provide effective nutrition advice and care to patients as well as the public.

We believe in multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches including doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, nurses, pharmacists, researchers, academics and other stakeholders.

We collaborate widely with practitioners, students, educators, researchers, professional associations, learned societies, the third sector and industry partners.

We promote research capacity building as well as ‘Good Research Practice’ to enhance the quantity and quality of potentially translatable evidence relating to key nutritional problems of clinical and public health importance.

We draw from a range of implementation science approaches in line with the ‘Knowledge-to-Action Framework‘.
