Stakeholder engagement is a critical component to public health work, yet leading the process in an equitable, democratic, and efficient way can be one of the most challenging things we do. In the February session of Hot Topics in Practice, Karyn Brownson discusses her experience developing the Washington State Suicide Prevention Plan with more than 250 stakeholders, whose input led to a document many communities find useful and relevant.
This one-hour webinar will cover the scope of suicide as a public health problem in Washington, the state’s model of stakeholder engagement, and lessons that may enhance projects of similar scope in other states.
