The shocking truth regarding job-related problems prior to nurse suicide


Event details

We have known for several years that nurses are at higher risk of suicide than the general population and that nurses have more job-related problems recorded prior to death by suicide. What we have now learned about those job-related problems is troublesome at best with implications for risk managers, hospital executives, and all leaders in healthcare. The panel in the Patient Safety Association webinar will describe the issues and implications for advocacy and policy change necessary to right the wrongs leading to death by suicide amongst nurses through personal testimony and review of recent research findings. This webinar is sponsored by CHPSO.

By the end of the session, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify major issues stemming from the workplace that lead to death by suicide.
  • Identify institutional, professional, and individual actions that can be taken to reduce risk.
  • Describe the flaws in the current system that prevent accurately tracking and action-planning to reduce risks amongst nurses.
