Inside the Research

Electronic health records convey information that is used for the provision of health care services. It is also an excellent source of information from which to learn about the different ways that children and adolescents with suicidal thoughts and behaviors may present to an emergency department. There are many pathways to suicide risk, and machine learning/artificial intelligence will be used to identify different groups of youth at risk for suicide seeking services at emergency departments.
