Suicide: Facing the Difficult Topic Together – Empowering Physicians, Instilling Hope in Patients
A CASP & MHCC project!
The Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) is thrilled to announce the release of a new online suicide prevention module for family physicians certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada. Led by mdBriefCase with sponsorship from the CASP and the Mental Health Commission of Canada , the module seeks to provide family physicians with the tools they need to address suicide in practice.
Although the module is only available in English now, CASP and MHCC are sponsoring the development of a French version of this module with the Federation of Medical Women of Canada (FMWC) and mdBriefCase, which will seek accreditation through the Fédération des Médecins Omnipraticiens du Québec (FMOQ). An accredited module for nurses is also under development with mdBriefCase and the Canadian Nurses Association and is expected to be released soon.
