Managing Suicide Risk Collaboratively: The CAMS Framework
When a suicidal person walks into your office, how prepared do you feel? For some providers, facing a suicidal patient may evoke worry or anxiety, as they may feel ill equipped to handle these cases. In Unit One you’ll learn about interventions typically used to treat suicidal patients, the evidence base (or lack thereof) supporting these, and an alternative intervention—one that is grounded in 25 years of research and proven in decades of practice in real-world settings. That intervention is CAMS, the Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality.
