The Gestational Diabetes Registry is a multi-site study that examines the documentation of RDNs who are providing nutrition care to clients with gestational diabetes (GDM). Dietitians will document the nutrition care provided into the Academy’s Health Informatics Infrastructure (ANDHII) before and after training on evidence-based practice guidelines and development of quality improvement initiatives customized for each participating site. While there are evidence-based nutrition practice guidelines for GDM, more work is needed to clarify gaps in guidelines, but also to demonstrate the value of evidence-based nutrition practice implementation for GDM. The project will investigate how guideline implementation can influence outcomes for gestational diabetes and the impact of using a quality improvement framework to implement evidence-based practice guidelines in a clinical setting for gestational diabetes. The Academy Data Science Center (DSC) is collaborating with investigators from Bowling Green State University (BGSU) to lead this project and it is being funded through the Karen Goldstein Memorial grant provided by the Diabetes Dietetic Practice Group and the Academy's Foundation.
