Suicide prevention: The role of community pharmacy teams


Suicide prevention

After completing this module you will be
able to list the risk factors for suicide, explain how to reduce the risk of medicines being involved in self-poisoning attempts, and refer/signpost people to services and online support resources.

This module will also help pharmacy teams in England and Wales to meet their new NHS community pharmacy contractual framework requirements from October 2020 by increasing awareness and knowledge of suicide prevention and supporting the formulation of pharmacy action plans.

Contributing author: Jules Haste, principal pharmacist at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

With additional input from Professor Alison Blenkinsopp and Dr Martin Duerden
