Every week there will be an in-depth research critique of a recent and/or relevant study, put into the context of relevance to the wider field, and application to clinical practice. There will also be regular video-based lectures on a relevant issue in nutrition science, with a frequency on average of 1 per month. Finally, there will be more in-depth, long-form research articles (one will generally accompany a given video lecture) for the bibliophiles amongst you.
First, joining is open to anyone who has a passion for learning about nutrition, HCP or not. The emphasis on HCP’s evolved over the past 2 years from my relationships with practitioners in different modalities – nutrition, medicine, personal training – and the realisation that many of them simply didn’t have the time to keep up to date with research, or spend as much time as they would like dissecting studies. While many HCP’s are turning to their own education and taking courses in nutrition at various levels, this isn’t always an option for everyone – and if it is, the demands of clinical practice often supersede everything else. The focus on HCP’s is an attempt to bridge this gap. Through the research review, the goal is not just to impart a perspective on the research, but to actively help practitioners become better at reading research. Through the video lectures, the goal is take wider areas of literature and synthesise them into format that is easily communicated. The ultimate goal is improving clinical outcomes through enhanced knowledge and translatable information.
Great, you’ll find shorter, open access articles with new content constantly coming.
There are a lot of great resources out there, each do things a bit differently. If you want to save time and have a large quantity of research on a given topic distilled into a succinct 10-20 min video lecture, then I’m not sure there is anywhere doing that outside of taking a course. I’m also not sure there is anywhere where there is a dynamic evolution of content with input from you. The benefit of doing weekly study reviews, rather than monthly or periodically, is that papers can be selected that are relevant to you, and not arbitrarily chosen. The format of the research review is also unique, as the goal is not just the breakdown of a given study, but going a bit deeper to help you get better at reading research, and putting it into context. Finally, and most importantly, the aim is to help make you have a better understanding of the nuances of nutrition science rather than simply tell you what any study showed.
