Course Description:
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide has continued to be the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. since 2008. Inpatient medical units are not designed to house patients who are suicidal, and healthcare professionals working in those settings often lack the specialized training to deal with patients at risk for suicide. Additionally, patients who commit suicide in hospital settings often have no previous documented psychiatric history. 

Conference Objectives:
The goal of this continuing education course is to provide clinicians with tools to detect and treat suicidal ideation in all inpatient and outpatient settings. After taking this course, you should be able to:
• Identify five suicide risk factors that indicate a patient is at increased risk for self-harm
• List three suicide-screening questions that help clinicians determine if a patient is at high risk for suicide
• Discuss four measures to maintain safety for suicidal patients

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
