Inside the Research

About one-third of individuals who die by suicide visit a primary care provider within the month before their death. While evidenced-based recommendations for preventing suicide through primary care exist, successful implementation of guidelines for clinical practice often depends on primary care team members working together. Demonstrating the feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of an educational intervention called Team Education for Adopting Changes in Healthcare (TEACH) may lead to improvements in evidence-based suicide prevention in primary care.
