Action research is a common journey for graduate students in education and other human science fields. This book attempts to meet the needs of graduate students, in-service teachers, and any other educators interested in action research and/or self-study. The primary purpose of this book is to offer clear steps and practical guidance to those who intend to carry out action research for the first time. As educators begin their action research journey, we feel it is vital to pose four questions: What is action research, and how is it distinct from other educational research? When is it appropriate for an educator to conduct an action research project in their context? How does an educator conduct an action research project? What does an educator do with the data once the action research project has been conducted?

In the second section of the book students are assisted with the challenges of developing research questions, evaluating and choosing the right sources, searching for information, avoiding plagiarism, and other useful topics.

Drug and Nutrient Interactions

Author(s): Sara Police, Ph.D., Jessie Hoffman, Ph.D., RDN

Subject(s): Pharmacology

Institution(s): University of Kentucky

This book is intended to pursue questions at the intersection nutritional sciences and pharmacology. A 2013 Mayo Clinic survey estimates that 7 out of 10 Americans are on at least one prescription drug, and more than half take two. Despite prominent use of prescription medications, issues related to nutrition because of prescription use – and vice versa – how nutrition can affect drug action – are not typically explored. Section I introduces readers to pharmacology terms and concepts related to drug and nutrient interactions. Mechanisms underlying drug and nutrient interactions with drug administration, absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion are also described. Section II describes the impact of drugs on nutrient status and conversely, the effect of nutrient status/nutrition on pharmacotherapy. Section III considers the role of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on foods versus drugs, and the regulatory framework underlying pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, foods and food products.
