Caring for Adult Patients with Suicide Risk: A Consensus Guide for Emergency Departments
June 19, 2015
The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention estimates that up to 20% of suicides could be prevented with the implementation of ED-based interventions. Caring for Adult Patients with Suicide Risk: A Consensus Guide for Emergency Departments is a new resource to promote a continuum of care, safety, and well-being for ED patients treated for suicide risk. Developed in collaboration with a panel of ED professionals, the Guide provides consensus- and research-based practices in decision support, initial interventions, and discharge planning.
