The ASPEN Board of Directors tasked the ASPEN Research Committee with development of a Research Agenda, which was published online in JPEN in November 2013.
The purpose of the Research Agenda is to provide patients, families, researchers, federal agencies, and other stakeholders with a structured assessment of key areas of nutrition and metabolic support that will benefit most from additional research efforts, whether these efforts are supported by ASPEN or other organizations.
The Research Agenda is not intended to provide a comprehensive review of the literature, and it does not define research priorities for ASPEN's grant programs. The intention is to help promote continuity across ASPEN activities with the larger goal of advancing research and scholarly discourse in priority areas.
