Overview of validity, quality control and measurement error issues in nutritional epidemiology






European Journal of Clinical Nutrition 47 Suppl 2: S1-S5

Overview of validity, quality control and measurement error issues in nutritional epidemiology

The aims of this scientific symposium were four: To achieve a better understanding of the causes of measurement error in the assessment of diet; with the goal of developing better methods and approaches with less error. To critically examine the extent of measurement error in existing methods, and understand its effect on study results. To explore strategies for adjusting for measurement error. To propose the incorporation of these in the design of nutritional epidemiologic studies.
