Healthcare providers play a critical role in the recognition, prevention and treatment of suicidal behavior. 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 meets the requirement for the State of Washington mandatory suicide prevention training for nurses (RCW 43.70.442) and has been approved by the Washington State Department of Health. Teaching methods include didactic presentations, discussion and interactive practice with suicide prevention tools.
