All Patients Safe: Suicide Prevention for Medical Professionals in Alaska
FREE TRAINING AND CME/CNE
The Northwest MHTTC is partnering with our Alaska colleagues to provide All Patients Safe training to a part of the region's workforce specifically based on the rates and prevalence of suicide.
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
Medical professionals can make an enormous impact!
Each self-paced 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 (see flyer for details)
Priority for access to this resource will be given to those who can
register, complete the course and complete the evaluation.
Costs for access/CMEs are sponsored by the Northwest MHTTC for those who complete the course & evaluation.
