December 2022: E-learning on 24-hour urine analyses

At the request of WHO, RIVM's WHO Collaborating Centre for Nutrition has developed an e-learning on 24h urine analyses. The e-learning assists countries in preparing for 24h urine collection for nutritional status surveys, for example for assessing salt and iodine intakes.

The e-learning consists of four videos. They explain the practicalities for researchers of 24h urine collections in preparation for a 24h urine collection and demonstrate the actions a participant must follow for the 24h urine collection, as an insight for the researcher.  The videos are available on the WHO CC website.

ation. Marieke Hendriksen presented the case study of the 24h collection in the Netherlands and discussed the challenges of such a study, together with prof. Franco Cappuccio of the WHO CC Nutrition of Warwick University.
