Suicidality Assessment and Documentation for Healthcare Providers: A Brief, Practical Guide

Written by David V. Sheehan MD, MBA and Jennifer M. Giddens

Description

Suicide is a leading cause of malpractice actions in psychiatry.  The product information on most psychiatric drugs advises clinicians to assess and monitor their patients for suicidality before starting and throughout the course of treatment on these medications.

The expectations on how to properly conduct and document suicidality assessments increased significantly following the inclusion of boxed warnings on suicidality for most psychiatric medications.  Healthcare providers need guidance on how to do this in a time efficient manner.  Skillful assessment protects their patients and the documentation protects them.  This brief, practical guide operationalizes and provides tools and templates for time-efficient assessment and documentation of suicidality.
