A pilot study can be described as studies which goal is to test whether a randomized control trial will be reasonable. This can be attributed to the fact that RCTs make an effort to predict sample sizes. The objective of the pilot study seeks to find out if a complete full-scale study can be performed. One pilot study that I came across was Childhood obesity study: a pilot study of the effect of the nutrition education program Color My Pyramid. In my opinion, I do not think that this was a pilot study. In fact, I believe that this was more of an inappropriately used label. This pilot study seems to be stating the obvious for example, the article mentions that obesity among children has increased quadrupled within a quarter-century. It further mentions that obesity can be decreased by appropriate nutrition and exercise (Moore et. Al, 2009). The effort to promote a healthy lifestyle is appreciated but it can be inferred that this was not, in essence, a pilot study but rather an inappropriate label.

In the subsequent study that is also a pilot study, it finds a correlation between poor nutrition and a lack of exercise that leads to increased rates of obesity in young children. Both pilot studies, in this case, seem to be mirror images of one another (Diet and nutrition disorders, 2014). In my evaluation, it can be inferred that it’s a continuation of an inappropriately used label

I found the following pilot study regarding maternal and neonatal health outcomes. The researchers collected data from maternity service records of an audit conducted by the Diabetes Nurse Practitioner (DNP) in an effort to evaluate the status of pregnant women with a pre-existing diabetes 1 and 2, and gestational diabetes diagnosis. The research question aims at investigating whether the interventions of a team of nurse practitioners are effective at reducing the health outcomes of both mother and child.

The researchers took into consideration the various strategies employed by the team of health practitioners to reduce the number of complications during and after birth of mothers who suffer from diabetes. It is not clear whether the study can be described as a pilot study as it simply evaluates the strategies used by the DNP program as an already established program that incorporated specific interventions as one model. The researchers’ intent and research question are well-intentioned, but lack specific direction as to why the study is classified as a pilot study.

Given the lack of research studies in the area of maternal and neonatal diabetes and management of symptoms to reduce adverse outcomes, the expectations for future research are likely to be sparked by interest in the subject and the prevalence of diabetes in pregnancies in developed and developing countries. However, I feel the researchers could have done more to make the study more specific in nature to allow the scientific community to appreciate the study as a pilot study and all the implications that come with such studies.
