Nutrition Surveys and Studies collaborative programme

Lead Research Organisation: MRC Centre Cambridge

Abstract

Understanding the relationship between nutrition and health requires detailed measurements of food and drink habits and the health status of the population at large. Specific research studies may also need to be conducted to test whether certain policy interventions have the desired effect. This evidence can then be used to monitor and develop policies to improve health.

Activities include the national collection of information on dietary habits and on the health of the public, often including collecting samples of blood or urine. This may involve liaison with hospitals around the country or using mobile clinics. This requires very rigorous procedures to ensure the data is collected appropriately and handled confidentially and we have developed many new procedures to do so. EWL’s specialist teams analyse information to understand dietary habits and our laboratories are able to measure a very broad range of nutrients in the body. We write reports detailing the results, often for government and these are used to inform the development of public health policy. For example, data from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey is used to identify any deficiencies in specific nutrients, perhaps in particular sub-groups of the population and to monitor changes over time. We are also involved in measuring the response to a micronutrient supplementation in Africa.

Technical Summary

The Nutrition Surveys and Studies (NSS) collaborative programme to contribute to the evidence base of policy, particularly through participation in the UK nutrition surveys. MRC EWL (and previously HNR) has a long history of involvement in population nutrition studies and surveys including the UK’s National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS), sodium (salt surveys) and one-off specialist surveys such as the Diet and Nutrition Survey of Infants and Young Children (DNSIYC, 2008-11), as well as specific contributions to externally led research. Activities also include provision of specialist research expertise for external groups (including MRC investments) enabling the examination of nutrition and diet in conjunction with lifestyle and other environmental factors to understand influences on health. In addition we contribute to international harmonisation programmes (e.g. Vitamin D Standardisation Programme, VDSP NIH).
The NSS programme is predominantly externally funded. The primary activity is the NDNS Rolling Programme (RP) Years 1-10 (2008 – 2018), funded by Public Health England (PHE), UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) and devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. MRC EWL provide the scientific lead and all nutritional components; the survey is delivered in partnership with National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) and the University of Cambridge (Y10). This work, including measures of food consumption, nutrient intake and nutritional status and measurement of energy expenditure by doubly-labelled water, forms the backbone of the UK nutrition surveillance programme. These data underpin health risk assessment, the evaluation of government health recommendations and allow analysis of the ways diet and nutrition differ across the population and change over time. MRC EWL outputs include interpretation and production of detailed results reports, analysis of trends in intake and status, focused reports on issues of specific public health priority and detailed methodological reporting. As part of the UK nutrition survey programme, we also undertake population representative assessments of salt intake in adults aged 19-64yrs in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, through measurement of sodium excretion in 24h urine collections.
NSS Activities are delivered through EWL’s nutritional specialisms, most often carried out in collaboration with or on behalf of external partners, including government departments and agencies, other academic and clinical research groups, and industry. We focus the provision of nutritional expertise, advice and techniques for population and public health initiatives of high relevance and importance. We support robust collection of data in the field, provide analysis of dietary and biochemical data and delivery of datasets and reports, against rigorous quality standards, including provision of high-level scientific oversight and methodological innovation in the areas of dietary assessment and measurements of nutritional status. Other activities include international collaborations, primarily through the MRC International Nutrition Group to measure micronutrient status in observational cohorts and intervention studies, such as trials of early nutrition and immune development in The Gambia.

Description Need for Nutrition Education Programme - Nutrition Education for Improved Clinical Outcome project
Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact The Nutrition Education Leadership for Improved Clinical Outcomes (NELICO) project, is a subsection of the Need for Nutrition Education Programme. This phase of work began in 2010, with the main objective to deliver and evaluate innovative training in nutrition education and clinical leadership for junior doctors. This training would enable them to run nutrition awareness weeks across 3 NHS hospitals in England. All three hospital teams conducted highly effective nutrition awareness weeks. This was concluded through qualitative feedback from participants obtained immediately after the training and again after the awareness weeks. Additional information was gained from other hospital staff involved in the nutrition awareness weeks process. Collection of data for clinical audits on the use of the Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (MUST) by ward staff, the number and type of educational events held, attendance and feedback from teaching sessions, effectiveness of dissemination methods such as nutrition awareness week stalls, staff survey results and overall feedback, were other measures of effectiveness. The NELICO project and its resultant nutrition awareness weeks were considered useful by the majority of those involved, particularly in terms of raising awareness on clinical and public health nutrition in the hospital setting. In addition, the nutrition champions all found this to be a valuable professional development experience fostering a number of generic/transferable skills that can be utilised to tackle other education and awareness issues in the clinical setting. The junior doctor led training was particularly effective when combined with input and oversight from the hospital dietetics team. The results of these weeks were presented in a Round Table Event in London. This event included key individuals from the medical, nutrition and education sectors who discuss the importance of nutrition and education and how we can work together.

Title DINO ( Diet in Nutrients Out) dietary assessment system 
Description This Access based system has optimised the dietary assessment function at HNR. It is a very versatile and user friendly system allowing coders and editors to carry out dietary assessment quickly and with the many variabilities of the studies with which HNR is involved. Collaborators appreciate its versatility and approach HNR to have dietary assessment done because of its usefulness. It cannot be provided as such to other researchers because the food composition database on which it is based is not our property but the property of the Department of Health. We also do not have the resources to deal with updating the database to deal with the many queries that would result from making it available, even if we could do so. 
Type Of Material Improvements to research infrastructure 
Provided To Others? No  
Impact The creation of DINO enabled HNR to carry out the dietary assessment for the National Diet and Nutrition Survey and the new Diet and Nutrition Survey of Infants and Young Children, bringing major resources to HNR for these surveys and making HNR the major centre for dietary assessment in the UK. Many other researchers approach HNR to do their dietary assessment because of the DINO system and the fact that this is used in NDNS, and they wish to compare the results of their own study to the nationally representative results and therefore want to use the entirely same system, and our expertise with it. More recently, additional nutrients and compounds of interest have been added to the nutrient databanks which provides the nutrient outputs for DINO. For example, caffiene, polyphenols, whole grains and the glycaemic index of foods have been added.

Impact The NVS Platform/Team is led under NSS by SR (NNEdPro Chair c/o BDA & Cambridge University), in the role of Senior Clinician Scientist as well as NDNS Lead Clinician, at the MRC Elsie Widdowson Laboratory (EWL) in Cambridge. NVS focuses on the development and synthesis of translatable evidence as well as strengthening methodology, underpinning the ability to investigate and define the place of Nutrition in the CVD/Metabolic Risk Management. The NVS team also has a particular interest in understanding how diets rich in (or supplemented with) fruit, vegetables and/or phytonutrients can modulate cardio-metabolic pathways in at-risk populations, such as the overweight and obese. Based on NVS work, the NNEdPro group aims to translate key findings and other supporting evidence from the wider literature, particularly into educational innovations (incorporating impact assessment) for healthcare professionals. NVS also leads on a national Consensus Forum aimed at harmonising methods in this area across UK centres and NVS is also involved significantly in the BNF compendium of evidence on Nutrition and CVD (10 year update).

The teaching was repeated in the 2011-12 academic year and NNEdPro group members have also contributed to Student Selected Components (SSCs). Nutrition now has a place in the clinical phase of the Cambridge Undergraduate Medical Curriculum and contributes to teaching in 4th Year, 6th Year, student selected components. Further development of this curriculum stream is underway. The Cambridge NNEdPro team has also produced 2 key papers in 2013 with several more in progress. The group collaborated with the American Society of Nutrition (ASN), Medical Nutrition Council (MNC) to write a supplement on medical education in nutrition. The group will also be collaborating with the MNC on a seminar to be run at the ASN conference in San Diego in spring 2014. The NNEdPro group has recently launched a second work hub at the University of Ulster. This hub will focus on the importance of hydration education and will increase collaboration across the regions. Collaboration on funding application also exists with several partners. Although these applications are still under consideration, the collaboration will continue with or without the funding, as the ethos of many programmes remain similar.

Nutrition now has a place in the clinical phase of the Cambridge Undergraduate Medical Curriculum and contributes to teaching in 4th Year, 6th Year, student selected components. Further development of this curriculum stream is underway. The Cambridge NNEdPro team has also produced 2 key papers in 2013 with several more in progress. The group collaborated with the American Society of Nutrition (ASN), Medical Nutrition Council (MNC) to write a supplement on medical education in nutrition. The group will also be collaborating with the MNC on a seminar to be run at the ASN conference in San Diego in spring 2014. The NNEdPro group has recently launched a second work hub at the University of Ulster. This hub will focus on the importance of hydration education and will increase collaboration across the regions. Collaboration on funding application also exists with several partners. Although these applications are still under consideration, the collaboration will continue with or without the funding, as the ethos of many programmes remain similar.

Results and Impact The NNEdPro group including the Founder/Chairman, an MRC Senior Investigator Scientist, held an intensive training weekend for 3 teams of junior doctors from 3 NHS hospitals. Topics including, nutrition, change management and leadership were presented by doctors, dietitians, nutritionists and professionals in change management and leadership. The junior doctors formed teams and returned to their respective hospitals to complete 3 Nutrition Awareness Week programmes in June 2012.

All three hospital teams conducted highly effective nutrition awareness weeks. This was concluded through qualitative feedback from participants obtained immediately after the training and again after the awareness weeks. Additional information was gained from other hospital staff involved in the nutrition awareness weeks process. Collection of data for clinical audits on the use of the Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (MUST) by ward staff, the number and type of educational events held, attendance and feedback from teaching sessions, effectiveness of dissemination methods such as nutrition awareness week stalls, staff survey results and overall feedback, were other measures of effectiveness.

The NELICO project and its resultant nutrition awareness weeks were considered useful by the majority of those involved, particularly in terms of raising awareness on clinical and public health nutrition in the hospital setting. In addition, the nutrition champions all found this to be a valuable professional development experience fostering a number of generic/transferrable skills that can be utilised to tackle other education and awareness issues in the clinical setting. The junior doctor led training was particularly effective when combined with input and oversight from the hospital dietetics team.
