Last month, SISN was in attendance at Experimental Biology (EB), Chicago, USA. This annual multi-disciplinary scientific meeting attracts delegates from all areas of life sciences and from the wider global community. As a new society, we were excited to be present and capitalize on the opportunity to raise awareness of the Society and our mission […]
The Many Forms and Purposes of Implementation Research in Nutrition: Definitions, Domains and Distinctions for Advancing Research and Practice
Poor nutrition is recognized as the biggest risk factor for morbidity and mortality worldwide. Over the past decade there has been increasing momentum within the global community to commit to “ending malnutrition in all its forms by 2030”[i]. Despite this unprecedented commitment, the Global Nutrition Report [ii] observed considerable variation in coverage across various interventions, as […]
If you are planning on heading to the Windy City next month for Experimental Biology (EB) 2017, please seek out and introduce yourself to our Board Members who can be identified by their SISN branded buttons. As part of the American Society for Nutrition’s (ASN) scientific program, SISN will be presenting a symposium entitled “Implementation […]
In 2012, SUNRAY an initiative to identify nutrition research priorities in sub-Saharan Africa, identified a number of research gaps: donors, rather than policy-makers and implementers drove research activities; research was not adequately linked to local priorities; and there was a substantial amount of research waste. These findings led to the formation of EVIDENT, a north-south partnership created to […]
SISN’s Strategic Plan sets out our conceptual thinking and the steps which we are taking to achieve our vision in support of global and country efforts to scale-up nutrition. Fundamental to this plan are three priority areas for attention: the first is the ‘Implementation Spectrum’ – SISN’s expanded view of what need to be considered […]
There is a growing interest in implementation science (IS). The scope and complexity of this science means that in order to effectively scale-up nutrition, we need to engage key stakeholders to prioritize research questions, select and tailor methods to the local context, and raise awareness of the importance of evidence-based implementation amongst the nutrition community. […]
Our Symposium on implementation research (IR) at the Micronutrient Forum, co-sponsored with Sight & Life, was a unique opportunity to hear from four highly respected implementation stakeholders (representing government, NGO, donors and academia), about their sectors’ perspectives on IR. What was striking about their reflections was not, as you might expect, the differences, but, the […]
In June, the first draft of the Society’s Strategic Plan was circulated to a large number of nutrition stakeholders for review and feedback. We can now announce that, thanks to the inclusion of their expert and extremely valuable input, the full Strategic Plan can be read here. The Strategic Plan forms the bedrock of the […]
Another opportunity for member engagement is at the Micronutrient Forum in Cancun where most of the Board will be in attendance and the Society will present at two sessions. For full details on IR sessions during the Forum, please click here.
