The goal of this simulation is to enhance learners’ awareness and comfort in performing the Suicide assessment utilizing Suicide Assessment Five-Step Evaluation and Triage (SAFE-T) Protocol with C-SSRS (Columbia Risk and Protective Factors) – Recent. Further, learners will be able to competently identify warning signs and risk factors of suicide, individual protective factors. It will also demonstrate prioritized safe care utilizing therapeutic communication with client and healthcare team members
