Welcome to the landing page for the Health Space at Wikimania 2019 in Stockholm!
The Health Space at Wikimania will be on Friday August 16th and Saturday August 17th, 2019. It is being organized by Wiki Project Med Foundation.
Talks and discussions will pertain to topics related to Wikip(m)edia and Health. These may include updates regarding what people have worked on, where we hope or should go next, amd pitches by external partners regarding further collaborations.
The event is open to everyone, including hard core Wikipedians, those thinking about dipping their toes in the water, or fellow travelers in the information space who similarly believe everyone deserves access to high quality health information.
It would be good to have at least one session using a panel, taking questions either from the floor on the day, or from emails/on-wiki a few weeks before (to enable participation from editors not attending). I'd be happy to facilitate the session and/or participate on the panel. --RexxS (talk) 21:19, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
"MEDRS - bulwark or barrier?" I'd be interested in running a mock debate between folks playing the parts of a new contributor who wants to write about a medical condition and an experienced medical editor. We could explore the topics of verifiability, sourcing, NOR, and due weight as they apply to medical topics. --RexxS (talk) 21:19, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes a panel regarding sourcing requirements could be interesting. Doc James (talk) 14:47, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Agreed, this is a continual point of discussion/confusion (particularly issues around appropriate sourcing for types of claims). Soupvector (talk) 03:53, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
Any psycho-therapist, oncologist, endocrinologist and/or surgeon; with financial support one or two of us could be a keynote speaker as well, if not neither probably even attend. Best regards, Klaas `Z4␟` V cj?: 17:37, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately I am not aware of any funding to support attendance remaining avaliable at this point in time. Not sure what you mean by one or two of us? Which two? Best Doc James (talk) 18:44, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
