Please note – The online training modules are currently under review and update, due for completion by the 30th June 2020.
The outcome of the Lishman Health Foundation sponsored Suicide Prevention project was the development of an on-line multi-media training program for GPs.
An assessment of existing services (also funded by the Lishman Health Foundation) found that;
- 75% of GPs had not undertaken suicide prevention training in the last three years
- fewer than 50% of GPs could identify early warning signs of suicidal intent and
- fewer than 10% of GP’s consider current inter-professional collaboration as adequate in the management of the suicidal patient.
The online training program is accredited by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners as a CPD Accredited Activity. Upon completion of the training program, GPs will receive 40 CPD (Continued Professional Development) points in the RACGP CPD 2020-2022 Triennium (Activity Number 186493).
