Back to Overview

On November 28th, 2017, The Society for Implementation Science in Nutrition (SISN) hosted its second live webinar entitled “Why Invest in Implementation Research (IR)?”. SISN Board Member, Dr Gretel Pelto, Graduate Professor, Division of Nutritional Sciences, Cornell University, moderated a panel of three experts who shared their real-world experiences of using IR to great effect in a number of different settings. These panelist presentations included:

Dr Eva Monterrosa, Senior Scientific Manager, Sight and Life speaking on “Using stakeholder analysis to examined acceptability and appropriateness of a nutrition policy. An example from Mexico” (pdf of slides)

Dr Alison Tumilowicz, Senior Technical Specialist in Monitoring, Learning and Research, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) speaking on “Micronutrient powder (MNP) interventions in Ethiopia and Mozambique: The use of IR in program delivery” (pdf of slides)

Ms Giulia Baldi, World Food Programme: “The Fill the Nutrient Gap (FNG) Tool: Taking analysis to action to improve nutrition” (pdf of slides)

The 10-minute presentations illustrated how these case studies ‘mapped’ on to the recently published SISN Classification Scheme for IR and were followed by a lively question and answer period.

We are pleased to share the recording with you, as well as a pdf copy of the slides. We hope that you find the presentation and subsequent discussion informative and thought-provoking.
