Being familiar with the AMSR approach and the risk formulation will give direct care staff the understanding and skills needed to assist in the care patients who are at risk for suicide. The staff in these roles, such as case managers, care navigators, mental health technicians, patient support staff, recovery coaches, peer specialists and licensed practical nurses need to know the care plan and risk level so they can support the patient and the clinical team.

Learn how to help identify and support individuals with suicide risk by using the suicide risk identification, assessment, and management competencies. This course will ensure treatment teams of clinicians and direct care staff can speak the same risk assessment and management language to provide consistent, effective care organization wide.

The learning experience has been purposefully created to be highly practical. It includes short, simple and easy to absorb lessons, optional dig deeper content and a digital library with additional resources you can access at any time. With 3 hours of course content, to be completed within three months, at a time that is convenient, direct care staff will understand care plans and risk levels to be better able to support patients in care.
