The study is composed of two component projects:
Project A: Validation of a NLit tool for UK population.
NLit tool is a measurement tool developed at Kansas University to measure nutrition health literacy. It assesses the following functional literacy skills: numeracy & literacy and the following nutrition knowledge fields: macronutrients, food labels, portion sizes, food groups and consumer skills.
This project has two phases:
Phase A: Nominal consensus groups x 2 - consumer adaptation and tool review for UK use and pilot testing of electronic tool.
Phase B: Testing adapted tool in a group of cancer patients for statistical validation.
Project B: A survey to measure experiences of getting, using and understanding nutrition information during cancer treatment for patients and their friends or family.
This survey is a combination of validated and unvalidated questions built on models of nutrition health literacy. With validated fields being used to evaluate and understand responses to unvalidated questions.
It explores access to nutrition information, self-efficacy, confidence, health care infrastructure and support with nutrition information, population demographics, food security, sources of nutrition information, perceived practical skills and knowledge base.
