The Primary Care Provider’s Role in Preventing Suicide

Wednesday Aug 12, 2015 01:30 pm to 03:00 pm EDT
United States

Individuals thinking about suicide can fall through the cracks of fragmented systems. Primary care physicians can play an important role in assessing and managing suicide risk given that nearly half those who die by suicide are in contact with a primary care physician within one month of their death.  

Join this advanced practice webinar to learn how to move beyond the basics of suicide prevention toward real implementation strategies to improve systems of care to achieve zero suicides. Dive into seven essential elements of suicide care with Zero Suicide, a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention in health and behavioral health systems.

In preparation for this webinar, we strongly encourage participants to become familiar with Zero Suicide by reviewing the Zero Suicide website and The Emerging Zero Suicide Paradigm Webinar.
