Join the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation to learn more about the integration and use of Nutrition Care Practice in breastfeeding practice by Registered Dietitians.

Learn from presenters Melissa Cooper, MSH, RDN, LDN and Casey Colin, DCN, RDN, LN, CNSC, ACSM-CPT, FAND who are currently conducting a breastfeeding practice registry study utilizing the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation’s Health Informatics Infrastructure (ANDHII). The study, generously funded by the Pediatric Nutrition Practice Group and the Women’s Health Dietetics practice group, aims include to:

  • Examine the documentation of RDNs included in the study that are currently working in areas related to breastfeeding/lactation practice
  • Examine the nutrition problem resolution rate in the documentation of RDNs and identify predictors of nutrition problem resolution
  • Examine nutrition outcomes in the documentation of RDNs and identify predictors of nutrition outcomes (infant weight, breastfeeding duration)

Through this webinar, methods of data collection and latest progress of the study are shared to understand the current use of the Nutrition Care Process (NCP) in breastfeeding practice in various practice settings and the associated infant and maternal health outcomes. Additionally, the speakers examine how the Breastfeeding Registry study has served as a model to engage and support graduate student level work that focuses on nutrition outcomes.

Dr. Colin is an assistant professor with the University of North Florida and a captain in the US Army Reserve. Dr. Colin believes that in order to elevate the profession of dietetics, we must prove RDN value with objective data directly linking MNT with outcomes. Dr. Colin has more than 13 years of dietetics practice and nearly 15 years of military experience. With a vision that RDNs will share the spotlight with physicians, nurses, and other allied health professions, Dr. Colin’s quest is to inspire all levels of RDNs to become leaders in healthcare. This journey will involve critical research to maintain proficiency, ethical clinical care, expansion and education of peer providers, progressive professional and cultural advocacy, and community engagement. Success is an evolution, where RDNs will gain greater appreciation as experts within healthcare as services they provide become highly valued as the key to prevention and treatment.
