27 January 2021: Mental Health Services Dataset - Autism waiting times statistics overview webinar

The next MHSDS webinar will provide an overview of the recently developed Autism Waiting Times Experimental Statistics series.  

The webinar will provide an overview of the purpose of the statistics, the methodological approach taken and future planned developments. There will also be a summary of the data quality considerations providers need to understand when submitting data about autism diagnostic pathways. We will touch on some key points, including:

  • the methodologies in determining waiting times for those with suspected or diagnosed autism and how the waiting time measures differ
  • key data items needed for us to produce accurate and representative statistics
  • updates planned for early 2021 onwards to build on and strengthen the measures

The purpose of strengthening these statistics is ultimately to improve care for those entering an autism diagnosis pathway.

Bookings for this webinar are now live, and you can book onto this webinar using the Book Now link above.

This webinar will be recorded with Q&A available at the end of the presentation.

Date: Wednesday 27 January 2021 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm
