Project #66908 - Health/Nutrition Read and Answer Assignment

Attached is a recent peer review journal article on different diet assessment techniques in epidemiologic research (look up that term in your textbook or online if you don't recall what epidemiology means). The objective of this assignment is for you to become proficient in your understanding of diet recall methods and some of the challenges associated with them in the quest to conduct accurate diet assessments in various settings.

Your assignment:

 

1)    Read the article by Shim, Oh & Kim (2014) in full, and though may be somewhat technical—I am confident that you work through it and can decipher the main content. Look up terms that may be familiar. Of particular importance is Table 1 on p.2 that outlines the characteristics, strengths and limitations of each method. (While more modern research methods include electronic tools—there continue to be clinical settings in the world where assessments are still done manually.)

2)    Using both the Shim, Oh & Kim (2014) article as well as the corresponding information from the textbook (thus, both sources must be indicated in your reference list/bibliography as well as in in-text citations for this assignment)—write your interpretation of the diet history method compared to the 24-hour recall method and one additional method you choose from these sources—as a way to gather as accurate as possible recent dietary intake information for an individual. Include a definition of the word epidemiology and/or epidemiologic methods as you introduce your discussion of the article by Shim, Oh, & Kim (2014) (for which you may need to get additional info from a credible alternative source though the textbook does mention epidemiology). For the appropriate listing of this journal article among your references in APA style– go to http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/journal-article/  Make sure you get it right!

 

3)    Limit your answer to about two detailed, typewritten pages and make sure you use paragraph transitions for each of the methods addressed separately as well as a paragraph for the comparison you are to do as outlined above in #2.
