Best Practices in Providing Suicide Safer Care in Health Care Settings

March 6, 2016 - 9:00am to 5:00pm
Las Vegas, Nevada
National Council for Behavioral Health Annual Conference

Health care providers see people at risk for suicide every day. But how do you know that you are providing safe, evidence-based treatments that work?  Does your staff truly feel comfortable and confident to work with this population?  Does your electronic health record reflect a clinical workflow for suicide care? This preconference session will focus on providing step-by-step evidence-based suicide care in health care settings from assessment to follow-up. Presenters who have done the work of making this change will share their successes and lessons learned. The Suicide Prevention Resource Center’s Zero Suicide framework provides the rationale, tools and support for organizations to adopt and launch this comprehensive approach to suicide safer care in clinical settings.
