Consensus Reports

A Consensus Report may be produced for topics that are controversial, confusing, important for policy, or require clarification but the strength of the quality of evidence from the systematic review is limited or weak. Consensus report results are considered preliminary until further research is available to confirm or refute the available science. Consensus reports include a Consensus Statement and implications for practitioners. Consensus reports are published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
