Implementation Science for Nutrition Education Professionals and Researchers

(Recorded 9/18/18)

About the Webinar

Implementation Science (IS) is the study of how best to support uptake and sustainability of evidence-based and recommended practices. To date, application of IS principles and designs have been limited in the nutrition education field. This webinar will explore the relevance of IS for advancing the field of nutrition education. Attendees will become familiar with scenarios fitting for application of IS. Further, IS methods will be compared to terminology and concepts likely to be familiar to nutrition education audiences (e.g., process evaluation). 

This webinar is sponsored by the Research Division and the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.
