Advanced Adult Suicide Risk Management seminar, Auckland
November 28, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm$320
QPR is an internationally-renowned, peer-reviewed and evidence- based suicide prevention training programme designed to train healthcare professionals in how to provide competent suicide risk detection, initial assessment, and intervention to prevent the risk of a suicide attempt.
Many professionals have a high degree of on-the-job exposure to patients with suicidal behaviours, both in the pre-attempt phase (when suicidal persons are communicating suicide intent and desire via suicide warning signs), and after a suicide attempt.
QPR Suicide Screening and Triage training includes training on the use of a structured interview process to gather data that flows into a ‘decision tree’. This then leads the interviewer to establish a crisis management plan or intervention for the person who is at risk for suicide.
This triage process is a systematic and evidence-based process for determining level of risk and the subsequent level of intervention required. It also helps determine the need for, plan and carry out a referral for further evaluation and or treatment.
