This podcast will introduce listeners to Zero Suicide, a comprehensive framework that promotes a systems approach for suicide prevention in health and behavioral health care settings. In the Zero Suicide framework, health systems apply a quality improvement focus toward screening, suicide risk assessment, engaging patients in care, providing treatment, ensuring safe transitions in care, and staff-wide training. Speakers Dr. Brian Ahmedani, PhD, LMSW, of the Henry Ford Health System Center for Health Services Research and Julie Drew, LCSW, MPA, of Geisinger Health System’s AtlantiCare, in New Jersey, will share the experiences of their organizations’ implementation of the Zero Suicide framework, discuss organizational data collection priorities and changes over time, and identify their suggestions for identifying common outcomes that could be applied across health care systems.
