Existential Evidence: Quality of Evidence for Nutrition Policies: mine is better than yoursNutrition research is not always informed by the ultimate users of the data and thus studies may not be directed towards the ultimate needs of policymakers. Instead we have heavy reliance on systematic reviews of trials, many of which were never designed to be used for evidence generation in the first place. This plenary session aims to discuss this problem and consider opportunities for improvement.
