Wednesday, September 29, 2021
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. (EDT)
Presenter: William Axinn and Stephanie Chardoul
This webinar will describe the work to create a Nepal-specific Composite International Diagnostic Interview and the application of life history calendars to improve measurements of psychiatric disorders and individual exposures to potentially traumatic experiences. Results from initial analyses of these new CVFS measures will be used to illustrate the potential of this approach to advance population health research. There will be a Q&A session after the presentation.
