Suicide Risk Assessment in Primary Care Settings (Archived)

Aubrey R. Dueweke, PhD

Primary care is an important setting for improving identification and treatment of people at risk for suicide. Dr. Dueweke outlines evidence-based practice considerations for behavioral health consultants (BHCs) tasked with conducting suicide risk assessments and safety planning interventions in integrated primary care behavioral health (PCBH) settings. She will also discuss findings that highlight the importance of a nonjudgmental and direct approach to suicide risk assessment, a supportive therapeutic relationship, and a stepped care approach wherein suicide risk is managed in the least restrictive setting possible.
