Dr. Sands’ research is focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of care pathways for vulnerable older adults. Her funded research describes downstream healthcare utilization among older adults who do not receive sufficient help for their disabilities, how resilience influences healthcare utilization among older adults exposed to a disaster, and risks for poor outcomes among older surgical patients. Trained in quantitative psychology and biostatistics, she links survey, electronic health record, and medical claims data to identify modifiable drivers of older adults’ healthcare outcomes. She actively mentors graduate students and new researchers in Nursing, Statistics, Nutrition, Sociology and Engineering. She teaches Evidence-based Practice and Biostatistics.
