AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What social determinants & health/functional factors increase the risk of malnutrition for older adults living in the community?

It is important that the All of Us database includes a range of nutrition-related measures which are used to help identify malnutrition risk. Additional measures of malnutrition-related characteristics are important for malnutrition diagnosis. Validated screening tools such as the Malnutrition Screening Tool (MST) could be used regularly to collect this data, as well as linked surveys to capture demographic information and EHRs/exams to capture health/function.
