Hello. I am a Research Dietitian, and part of our pre-screening questionnaire for our study will be asking about social determinants of health. If a person scores often true on both questions of the Hunger Vital screening they are ineligible. For these people we want to provide them with food insecurity resources in the area, but also something a little more active. Do you have any resources for screening for SDOH in a research setting? I see a lot about clinical settings, but not in the research/study trial space. Thanks.

I also came across this resource on the American Academy of family physicians web page which has 3 suggested tools for addressing social determinants of health. Three tools for screening for social determinants of health ( However, they may not be what you are looking for in terms of research, but might help.
