Late Breaking Session: Clinical Nutrition Research and the COVID-19 Pandemic - A Scoping Review from the ASPEN COVID-19 Nutrition Task Force (S20)

10:15 AM – 11:45 AM ET

In this session, the faculty will present a scoping review to identify relevant and actionable research and knowledge gaps in clinical nutrition applicable to the COVID-19 pandemic. The intent is to use this information in a knowledge translation platform to improve clinical care before, during, and after acute COVID-19. Updates since the publication of this review as well as future research directions will also be discussed.


  1. Summarize the current state of the literature for COVID-19 Nutrition
  2. Deconstruct the differences between a systematic review and a scoping review
  3. Identify the relationship between knowledge gaps, research gaps, and practice gaps
