#PHTwitJC 10: Low income mothers & nutrition – systematic review

The paper topic chosen in the vote was Low income mothers, nutrition and health: a systematic review of qualitative evidence by Pamela Attree.

The study was published in 2005, making it older than most papers we discuss in Journal Club. However, I hope  you will find it interesting from a methodological point of view: what happens when  we apply systematic review techniques to qualitative evidence; how useful is this for enhancing public health knowledge?

A summary of issues & questions to follow.

Join us on Twitter at 8.00 pm (GMT) on Sunday 4th March, using the #PHTwitJC hashtag.

    Sorry- I missed the Tweet Up on this article. I was surprised that you regarded the article as “old” because it is on a phenomenon that does not change much, except due to catastrophe (eg. earthquake like Haiti); low income mothers in their own settings won’t change their habits much over the years as foods also remain much the same. Hopefully someone will post a summary of the discussion & any individual points people have written about elsewhere. Thanks.

  2. Kay, Thanks for your interest, hope you can join us another time.
    Maybe I phrased the ‘old’ point wrongly, would not have put it forward if I thought it was ‘outdated’ per se, but wanted to comment on it as usually we discuss very recently published studies. I agree with you!
    I will hopefully get a full transcript + some reflections up on the blog in the next couple of days.
    Best wishes
    Kate
