Thursday, April 23

8:15 a.m. — Safer Suicide Care in Health and Behavioral Health: The Zero Suicide Framework
Chelsea Booth, Ph.D., M.A.

Associate Director
Zero Suicide Institute
Waltham, Mass.

The foundational belief of Zero Suicide is that suicide deaths for individuals under the care of health and behavioral health systems are preventable. For systems dedicated to improving patient safety, Zero Suicide presents an aspirational challenge and practical framework for systemwide transformation toward safer suicide care. The evidence-based Zero Suicide framework transforms how health systems identify and care for people at risk for suicide. Systems that adopt the framework provide safer, more effective care by taking a holistic and comprehensive approach to patient safety and quality improvement, as well as attending to the safety and support of staff who do the demanding work of caring for those with suicidal thoughts and behaviors. The session will cover how to adopt the Zero Suicide framework with an overview of the seven elements, tools available to support adoption, and workforce development to reduce suicide deaths and improve care.

9:30 a.m. — Suicide Screening and Management
Kyle S. John, M.D.

Medical Director MentalWellness, East Region Medical Director for Behavioral Health
Mercy Virtual Care Center
Chesterfield, Mo.

Doug Burgess, M.D.

Medical Director Outpatient Psych

The Show-Me ECHO is a teaching model which provides ongoing medical education. It uses videoconferencing technology to connect a team of interdisciplinary experts with primary care providers.

Breakout 3: Mental Health Community Paramedicine
(noncertified for social workers)
David Lewis, EMT-P, FACHE

Assistant Chief
St. Charles County Ambulance District
St. Peters, Mo.

Reimbursement models, among all payer groups for emergency ambulance services have limited compensation in those instances where the service transported the patient to the emergency department. This creates a perverse incentive to bring patients to high-acuity, high-cost settings when lower-acuity, lower-cost settings may safely and more appropriately meet the patient's needs. Increasing demand for behavioral health services along with diminishing access has led to ED overcrowding and strained resources when the ED is used as the access point for low-acuity behavioral health conditions.

St. Charles County Ambulance District implemented new model responses to address the behavioral health needs of its patients that mitigate both challenges and gaps of traditional emergency care.

Breakout 4: An Integrated Approach to Systemwide Agitation Update
