Suicidal Patients in the Emergency Department: Improving Care through Partnerships with Crisis Centers

Date/Time (ET): 
November 8, 2011 - 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Led By: 
Suicide Prevention Research Center

For those that experience suicidal crises and receive care in Emergency Departments (ED), suicide risk does not end at the moment of discharge. Their elevated risks may continue and may be rekindled in the days and weeks that follow. This webinar describes potential new roles for crisis centers in working with EDs to fill these gaps and improve continuity of care for suicidal patients after ED discharge. Three speakers with diverse expertise will highlight research, best practices, and current work to improve care for suicidal patients after an ED visit. Tools and resources available to support effective practices for suicidal patients among EDs and crisis centers will be discussed. This presentation will be interactive, with opportunities to ask questions.
