The question of which factors drive human eating and nutrition is a key issue in many branches of science. We created an interdisciplinary, interactive and evolving “framework 2.0” of Determinants of Nutrition and Eating (DONE).
The DONE framework was created by an interdisciplinary workgroup in a multiphase, multimethod process. Modifiability, relationship strength, and population-level effect of the determinants were rated to identify areas of priority for research and interventions. Ratings were performed both by more than 70 members of the workgroup as well as by more than 100 external experts.
External experts positively evaluated the usefulness, comprehensiveness, and quality of the DONE framework. We aim to continue updating the framework with the help of experts. Please join the discussion and make your contribution to the framework!
The DONE framework can be freely accessed and used in a highly flexible manner: determinants can be sorted, filtered and visualized for both very specific research questions as well as more general queries. The dynamic nature of the framework allows it to evolve as experts can continually add new determinants and ratings. We anticipate this framework will be useful for research prioritization and intervention development.
Additional methodological information about the creation and evaluation of the DONE framework can be obtained from the journal article written about the DONE framework.
