Medical students and other clinicians in training who will be entering the primary care space are likely to encounter patients at risk for suicide. Nearly half of individuals who end their lives by suicide visit a primary care provider in the month before their passing, making primary care visits crucial opportunities to intervene. However, all too many clinicians receive minimal, if any, training in suicide prevention during their education.
Join ACU and the American Association of Teaching Health Centers for a webinar to explore quick, evidence-based strategies from ACU’s “Quick Tips” guide to help prepare students—or refresh practicing clinicians—in identifying, assessing, and intervening with patients at risk for suicide.

Using the Zero Suicide framework as a foundation and with the generous support of the Centene Corporation, the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved created the Suicide Safer Care curriculum to train primary care providers and their teams on skills for suicide risk assessment, evidence-based interventions, referral and transition when needed, and changing the culture of addressing suicide risk across clinical practice. Learn more about the curriculum and useful resources for primary care providers, including pediatric, geriatric, and adult suicide prevention toolkits.
