What We've Learned About Clinician Suicide and Responsive Measures
It has been known for decades that, compared with other professionals, physicians have a markedly increased propensity to die by suicide. Among medical students, suicide is second only to accidents as a cause of death. It is believed that, because of clinicians’ knowledge of and access to lethal means, there are fewer barriers to completion of suicide in those who are predisposed. Untreated or undertreated mental illness, primarily depression, is believed to be the major predisposing factor, although substance abuse, job disillusionment/burnout, litigation and disciplinary investigations may also be significant contributors. This webinar will raise your awareness of clinician suicidality and help prepare you to address the problem proactively.
