Suicidal ideation is a significant occupational barrier in every practice setting, and research shows that most OTs provide a suicide intervention during their career. This session will offer specific and practical recommendations to support practitioners working with clients who may be considering suicide. Using a new Canadian Role Paper on suicide prevention and OT, the latest research and recommendations for practice will be highlighted using case studies.
Following this presentation, the practitioner will be able to:
· Identify specific and practical recommendations to address the needs of clients experiencing suicidal ideation.
· Identify skills that position the profession of OT as an essential partner in health initiatives related to suicide.
