On behalf of Leann Sebrey, Chair of the Home Care Committee and Heidi McCaffery, Chair of the Hospice Care Committee, we are excited to invite you to participate in the Alliance's upcoming joint Committee meeting.
All are invited to join us for this meeting featuring a discussion facilitated by NAMI Maine to raise awareness around identification and assessment of suicide risk and the provision of ongoing care to assist in the management of the drivers of suicide.
Suicide Prevention and Management in Healthcare Settings: A Comprehensive Evidence-based Approach
Presented by Greg A Marley, LCSW - Director of Suicide Prevention, NAMI Maine
A Maine citizen is 13.5 times more likely to die by suicide than by homicide (2016-2018), yet suicide is among the most preventable forms of death. Healthcare practice settings provide an excellent venue for the identification and assessment of suicide risk and the provision of ongoing care to assist in the management of the drivers of suicide.
This discussion will provide updated information on trends in suicidal behavior across the lifespan and an overview of the best-practice approach to suicide identification, assessment, and management of suicide within a practice or hospital setting. Tools for practice will be offered to address assessment, Collaborative Safety Planning and coordinated follow-up.
There is no cost to participate in this LIVE event but registration is required. All clinical directors, social workers and ancillary clinicians; as well as any other team members interested in learning more about suicide prevention are encouraged to register.
Continuing Education Credit: The Maine Medical Education Trust is accredited by the Maine Medical Association Committee on Continuing Medical Education and Accreditation to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME) for physicians.
