The main aim of the first assessment item is to familiarise you with an evidence-based approach to nutrition research. You will collect and critically evaluate the evidence relating to your research project; examples of how to do this will be provided in tutorials. Specific instructions follow:
1. Write your topic and research project, together with your name, on a title page, which forms page 1.
Search for sources of evidence on nutrition interventions in your chosen topic area. Depending on the nature of your project, you may be looking for evidence of a problem existing, or for interventions to prevent or treat the problem. This could be in the form of systematic reviews, articles about interventions or official reports.
