Education Research

Education research is a research theme from the Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food

We conduct research into the preparation of the current and future nutrition and dietetics workforce. Our research is leading the evidence base that is changing and strengthening education practice and outcomes. We also collaborate with other health professions including the Monash Centre for Scholarship in Health Education (MCSHE) and our international dietetics partners to produce quality research outcomes with impact.


Our research is changing the way nutrition and dietetics professionals are prepared to practice, to deal with the complex nutrition problems our communities face. Some of our current nutrition challenges include the double burden of malnutrition, the safety and security of our food supply in the face of climate change, and our focus on collaborative person-centred care.
