Join us for SIREN’s next Methods Conversation on natural experiments.
With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, earlier this year SIREN launched a series of Methods Conversations for social care researchers. Each webinar focuses on a methods topic we are eager to learn more about. Intrigued? Come join us!
Our second session in this series will occur on September 12, 11am-12pm PT/ 2-3pm ET and will focus on natural experiments. Miguel Marino and Jorge Kaufmann from Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) will share considerations in the use of different quantitative approaches to evaluate natural social care experiments.
