The intent of this course is to: reduce current unwarranted practice variations and provide facilities with a structured framework to help improve patient outcomes (prevent suicide and other forms of suicidal self-directed violent behavior); provide evidence-based recommendations to assist providers and their patients in the decision-making process; and identify outcome measures to support the development of practice-based evidence that can ultimately be used to improve clinical guidelines.
