Suicide is a growing public health crisis, and 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 no training in suicide prevention during their education.

The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved has developed a new “Quick Tips” guide to help prepare clinicians in training with simple, practical strategies and micro-interventions that can be seamlessly incorporated into any primary care visit. Join Dr. Virna Little, Chief Clinical Officer at Concert Health, and Dr. Julian Mitton, System Director at CommonSpirit Health and Clinical Assistant Professor at Baylor College of Medicine, to understand the scope of the crisis, learn to recognize warning signs and screen for suicide, and implement simple, evidence-based interventions.

Continuing Medical Education: This live training is accredited for one (1.0) Continuing Medical Education credit. CME is not available for viewing the archived recording.

More Resources on Suicide Safer Care

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.
