Evidence-based treatment for suicidality (suicidal thoughts and/or behaviours) has changed a lot. So, you may not have had a chance to learn about the latest elements of best practice. This self-assessment tool aims to help you reflect on how your practice aligns with the latest evidence for treatment of suicidal people. You may find areas you are already doing well, and other areas where you can make changes to ensure you are aligned with best practice.

Free, locally-based CPD opportunity
By completing this tool you will receive free entry to a 1-day workshop on the core components of effective care. Both workshops that are being run in October are now FULLY BOOKED, however please contact us to get on the wait list or express interest in future training.

DATE: Monday 21st October - BOOKED OUT
TIME: 9am - 4pm
LOCATION: Grand Pacific Health Centre Nowra (107 Scenic Dr)

DATE: Tuesday 29th October - BOOKED OUT
TIME: 9am - 4pm
LOCATION: Shellharbour Civic Centre (76 Cygnet Ave)

Completing the self-assessment
To help make sure you understand each component being assessed, we will give you a:
- Brief description of each component
- Link to examples & resources 
- Details of the evidence behind each component

Please identify 3 people you have treated where suicidality was a key feature of their presentation. Please review and refer to their files when completing the self-assessment.
This survey should take approximately 20-30 mins in total, with the first file taking the longest.

Remember these core components are emerging so it would be expected that we will all have areas to improve. By completing this tool you are taking the first step to doing so.

Sharing your learnings
This tool is completely anonymous. Data from your self-assessment will be pooled with everyone's responses to ensure it is completely de-identified. The Collaborative will use the pooled results to inform what areas to emphasise in the workshop.
