And, WE’RE LIVE! AGAIN! FOR, LIKE, THE FOURTH TIME!
Dr. Chelsea Booth opens #SPSM Season Four to chat about all things data and suicide, 8/21/16, 9pCT. Ordinarily, SPSMers write the chat synopsis. But this time, we’re going to let Dr. Booth describe it in her own fabulous words:
“I’ll want to talk through the population level vs. system level data (and why that’s important for the field); each system (not in the order above, but probably wisqars, then wonder, then HCUP, then deaths in custody); Zero Suicide (how it’s responding to needs in the field that we learned about through data); data/information we hope to encourage ZS sites to collect. Why data are awesome. Why you (@DocForeman) and Bart are awesome. Renaissance costumes. World of Warcraft. Why KCMO is the best place on earth. What non data nerds should know about data and why it’s important for our work.”
