Training Overview Description

Suicide is a silent epidemic and public health crisis

In the US, suicide is a more common cause of death than breast cancer, prostate cancer, or traffic fatalities. In 2014 the rate of Alaska Native males that died by suicide was nearly four times the national average.

All Patients Safe provides the necessary tools to medical providers to understand their role in suicide prevention by teaching them how to:

• Integrate screening and assessment tools into their practice
• Educate patients on keeping homes safe
• Refer patients to additional resources
• Follow up with those at risk for suicide

Each self-pace training module includes:

• Real patient stories
• Model provider-patient interactions
• Interactive patient exercises with feedback

3 or 6 hours of complimentary CME and CNE credits available.

Medical professionals can make an enormous impact!
