The Building Capacity to Monitor and Evaluate Dietary Intake in Remote Communities pilot project aims to build the capacity of community based Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to collect dietary intake data by designing a dietary intake methodology and accompanying training method.
The project team aim to collaborate with ten community members in the development of the dietary intake methodology and training method, together with a group of experts in dietary intake methodology.
The project will also provide information on the acceptability and feasibility of using a dietary intake tool for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in a remote community setting. It is hoped this will empower Indigenous people to better understand nutrition and nutritional content of foods which will improve their health outcomes.
