Action-Oriented Population Nutrition Research: High Demand but Limited Supply.

Pham J, Pelletier D - Glob Health Sci Pract (2015)

Bottom Line: The relatively rapid ascendancy of nutrition and health on policy agendas, along with greater emphasis on accountability and results, has stimulated interest in new forms of research to guide the development and implementation of effective policies, programs, and interventions-what we refer to as action-oriented research.In addition, various research methods were used, such as stakeholder analysis, ethnographic narrative, iterative action research, and decision tree modeling, as well as different approaches, including participant-observer and community-based participatory research.With heightened attention to the magnitude and importance of nutrition problems worldwide, there are substantial reasons and opportunities to incentivize and support such expansion.

f01: Number of Action-Oriented Research Characteristics in Nutrition Papers by Journal Type (N=80)

Mentions: Of the 52 articles from nutrition journals that had 1 or more action-oriented research characteristic, 69% fulfilled the criteria for “topic(s) of study,” 81% for “processes/influences,” 44% for “actors,” 31% for “method,” and 31% for “approach” (Table 2). Only 2% of the articles embodied all 5 characteristics while 17% embodied only 1 characteristic, 35% embodied 2 characteristics, 25% embodied 3 characteristics, and 21% embodied 4 characteristics (Figure).
