UW Continuing Nursing Education presents Conference 2017 | Suicide Prevention Training. 

Conference Description
Healthcare providers play a critical role in the recognition, prevention and treatment of suicidal behavior and would benefit from the content presented at this conference. With over 42,000 suicide deaths per year in the U.S., identifying risk and protective factors for suicide as well as strategies for intervention is vital. This conference focuses on suicide and self-injury assessment, treatment and management, as well as suicide prevention in special populations including U.S. veterans. The conference is on the Washington State Department of Health’s model list and completion of this course fulfills the requirement for the State of Washington mandatory suicide prevention training for nurses and other healthcare providers (RCW 43.70.442). Teaching methods include didactic presentations, discussion and interactive practice with suicide prevention tools.
