About Tamara G R Macieira

TEACHING

Dr. Macieira’s teaching responsibilities are focused on the undergraduate BSN program and the DNP program as well as mentoring undergraduate and graduate nursing students.

RESEARCH

Dr. Macieira is an expert in nursing informatics, standardized terminologies, and data science, with experience in applying machine learning methods in research on aging, mainly the impact of nursing care on patient outcomes for cognitively impaired older adults. Throughout her career, she has examined the impact of nursing care on patient outcomes for populations with life-limiting chronic conditions (e.g., older adults, critically ill inpatients) through the analysis of nursing data retrieved from electronic health records (EHRs) from diverse health settings. Her post-doctoral fellowship focused on the identification of methods for integrating nursing care plan data gathered in EHRs into the statewide OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium Data Trust (i.e., OneFlorida Data Trust).

SERVICE

Dr. Macieira holds memberships in the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), Southern Nursing Research Society, and Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing – Alpha Theta Chapter. Her service activities include serving on professional association committees, such as AMIA 2020 Translational Bioinformatics Year in Review, and ad hoc reviewer for the Nursing Journal of Minas Gerais (REME) and the Brazilian Journal of Nursing (REBEn).
