A 1.5-Hour Training with Kathy Lisborg, Shelby Kuhn & Rick Strait
Mar 27, 2023
PRESENTATION: This training will introduce you to the Zero Suicide framework and offer some recommendations for implementation including topics such as: systematically identifying individuals at risk for suicide, safely transitioning individuals within levels of care, engaging individuals in safety planning and counseling for access to lethal means, and providing evidence-based suicide-specific treatments and interventions.
How does suicide connect to substance use?
- Suicide is a leading cause of death among people who misuse alcohol and other drugs
- Risk elevates in people with OUD, particularly those who inject drugs
- Up to 40% of individuals seeking SUD treatment report a history of suicide attempts.
As a result of this training participants will be able to:
- Understand the Zero Suicide framework, as well as the components of each of the seven elements.
- Describe current best practices and utilization of appropriate tools for the identification, treatment, and transition of patients at risk for suicide.
- List high-risk points of care delivery and care transitions that are unique to SUD populations.
