Description: This collection contains a range of videos providing guidance and instruction for scientists and researchers wishing to measure common lifestyle factors, including:

1) Dietary Intake
2) Physical Activity
3) Body composition and other anthropometry
4) Tobacco use and smoking
5) Alcohol Consumption

These exposures are key determinants of disease conditions with a high public health burden, so promoting the use of the best measurement methods that maximise precision and accuracy will help to generate higher quality and more informative research.

Please note that the methods described in these videos are referred to solely in the context of population health. While some may be suitable for clinical use, this is beyond the scope of the Toolkit.
