Suicide Assessment and Interventions in the Clinical Setting – Traralgon
May 16 @ 5:45 pm - 8:45 pmFree
Suicidal individuals often visit primary care providers in the weeks or days before suicide, yet many do not mention their suicidal thoughts to their clinician. Many clinicians are unaware of referral points and current best practice care and treatment. Capacity building and education for General Practitioners is one of the most promising interventions for reducing suicide. It is also important for other primary care providers to have well developed skills in this area.
During this event participants will learn and workshop the following skills:
- Overview of the most recent local suicide and self-harm data
- Best practice suicide risk assessment in the clinical setting
- Safety planning to protect your client
- Information about local services and referral pathways, including how and when to access LRH triage
