The purpose of this presentation includes creating quality and lasting systemic change in support of best practices in screening, intervention, and follow up of suicidal patients. Ideas for universal screening implementation, utilization of integrated care, and development of one-to-one observations for those at risk will be discussed. The Chickasaw Nation’s work in these efforts will be utilized as an example of a progressing system.
Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will learn how our suicide aware system was built.
  • Participants will learn more about the zero suicide initiative.
  • Participants will learn about the importance of universal screening and how this is carried out.
