Date: January 20, 2022
Time: 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. (Central time)
In this webinar, speakers will discuss their use of ANDHII to collect outcomes data in two separate research projects – the Oncology Outcomes Feasibility Study and the Diabetes Outcomes Registry. Presenters will showcase how ANDHII has been used for their respective projects, including how data was collected and aggregated in ANDHII as well as how the analysis will generate answers to important questions related to the nutrition care of patients in these populations. Unique aspects of each project will be presented, including how prospective nutrition care data will be coupled with a retrospective medical chart review in the Oncology Feasibility Study and how a natural language processing analyzer tool built to determine congruence of nutrition care to evidence-based practice guidelines in the Diabetes Outcomes Registry. These two examples will show how ANDHII is being used as an informatics tool to leverage technology and collect real-world nutrition data in order to advance evidence-based practice and better our dietetics care.

Dolores Guest, PhD, RD
Dr. Dolores Guest is a Research Assistant Professor in the Division of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Preventive Medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine; and is the Director of the Behavioral Measurement and Population Science Shared Resource of the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Guest completed her PhD in Nutritional Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she also completed her dietetic internship.
Her interest in lifestyle interventions with cancer patients and survivors began when she was a postdoctoral fellow in a combined program at UIUC and Southern Illinois University, School of Medicine, where she examined the effects of diet and lifestyle on breast cancer survivors. She has been at the UNMCCC since 2014; during which time she has supported several dozen cancer control projects. Since 2018, she has been working with the Nutrition Research Network of the Academy on the Oncology Outcomes Feasibility Trial which was developed to respond to the clear need of patients with cancer treated in the outpatient setting be provided more access to nutrition care.
Erin Lamers-Johnson, MS, RDN
Erin is a Nutrition Researcher with the Academy's Nutrition Research Network. In her current position, she coordinates the multisite AAIM Validation and Staffing Optimization Study. She was the study coordinator for the Diabetes Registry Study and continues to collaborate with colleagues on ANDHII registry studies. Erin completed her dietetic internship and master's degree in human nutrition at the University of New Mexico. In her current position, Erin pursues research that evaluates the implementation of evidence-based practice recommendations and their effect on RDN care and patient outcomes. She is particularly interested in research that supports efforts to increase RDN visibility by demonstrating the value of RDN care for patients and clients across different health care settings. Outside of work, Erin enjoys outdoors activities such as biking, paddleboarding, and going for walks with her husband and dog.
