By its nature, scientific research is not readily accessible and can be difficult to understand. Additionally, media headlines and articles on scientific research, regardless of the strength of the study, can generate significant buzz and can have a direct influence on Americans' beliefs and behaviors about food and nutrition. This indicates a need to use practical tools to improve the quality of future research as well as public communication and education. The first part of the session will explore four established tools that produce food- and nutrition-related systematic reviews and provide insight into how these tools can strengthen future nutrition research. The second part will focus on a new consumer-friendly tool that evaluates scientific research, and presenters will discuss results from a recent validation study of this tool. Attendees will learn how to apply this new tool in practice, which can improve their patients' and clients' education around nutrition research.
