Description

Suicide Prevention and Safety Planning Training

Suicide Safety Planning as an intervention aims to help reduce suicidality after discharge of patients who had made suicide attempts from hospitals. Suicide Safety Planning is easily transferable to the general practice setting, providing GPs with a much-needed intervention to help manage suicidal patients. This session will be a discussion of the assessment of suicide risk in primary care and the integration of suicide safety planning into practice.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the session participants will:

• be able to describe how to conduct a suicide risk assessment

• understand the difference between "statistical risk factors" and "warning signs" for suicide and their significance in risk assessment

• be able to describe the content of a Suicide Safety Plan

• be familiar with an eMH tool to help them collaboratively create a Suicide Safety Plan with their patients
