Electric Scooter Query 3 B. Yarnell Hi everyone, It looks like the CDC is looking at dockless scooter accidents in Austin Texas. It would be interested to hear how they used syndromic surveillance to look at the injuries.

Forum Friday 10/19/18 - Collaborations with Injury Surveillance? 4 E. Lamb I think identifying champions within your organization is a great place to start too. One resource I have learned from Amanda's presentation was the CDC Rape Prevention and Education map: https://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/rpe/states.html.  You can find her reference mentioned in the slide deck from the October NSSP CoP call.  It also helped knowing I could follow up with a speaker after the call to learn more about the resources shared in presentation where I was reminded of how to find this map.  I think this would have been a good place for us to start if we knew about this resource a few weeks ago.  Thanks Amanda for sharing!

Forum Friday 10/19/18 - Sexual Violence Resources 0 E. Lamb Are there any key resources (i.e. background trends, etc.) that can be shared, about sexual violence surveillance, that can help with the justification of using syndromic surveillance resources to help with prevention efforts?

Forum Friday 9/21/18 - Suicide Surveillance 7 E. Lamb I love the idea of sharing information about school age children with school nurses! I bet there are other topics they'd be interested in as well. Thanks for sharing! As to Deborah's question, I have been collaborating with people in our agency that work on injury and violence prevention, emergency preparedness, as well as behavioral health. Until recently, most MH work was done outside our agency. I'm still learning who does behavioral health in our agency. I'm hoping to strengthen relationships with these partners, especially now that we are in the same agency.

Mental Health Case Definitions / Queries 4 A. Ising Amy, I just noticed the date on this post.  Was confused because it was in a summary email yesterday from the website.  Still I thought I'd post that we have several and are working with the syndrome definition committee to vet them. I'll send you an email of what we have so far and copy Achintya who worked on them and can describe the details to you.  Otherwise, these will become more available through the syndrome def committee when they've been put through the vetting process. Sincerely, Michael Coletta

Coagulopathy Cluster Syndrome Definitions 8 M. Patel I'm curious if anyone has explored using procedure codes for this. I'm was wondering if INR testing might be something that shows up. We have a set of facilities that send this information, but since it's not currently queryable within ESSENCE, I haven't used it yet.
