Suicide Prevention (All Patients Safe)

Printer-friendly version

All Patients Safe is an interactive online suicide prevention training made by and for medical professionals. It offers an engaging and informative option for providers to become better skilled at suicide prevention. Perspectives of real patients coupled with practical skills help medical providers transfer what they learn to their practice and community.

To address suicide as a public health crisis, leading experts and health care organizations have collaborated to develop All Patients Safe: Suicide Prevention for Medical Professionals. The 3- and 6-hour All Patients Safe courses meet Washington State’s licensure requirements for suicide prevention training for health care professionals.
