American Psychiatric Nurses Association Identifies Urgent Need for Competency-Based Suicide Prevention Training for Psychiatric Mental Health RNs
Date:8/27/2013

Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

A position paper issued by the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (APNA) and printed in the July/August issue of the Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (JAPNA) identifies the need for consumer-centered, competency-based suicide assessment and prevention training for psychiatric mental health registered nurses (PMHRN) practicing in the inpatient setting. The position paper, “Competency-based Training for Nurse Generalists: Inpatient Intervention and Prevention of Suicide”, was approved by the APNA Board of Directors in June.

According to the CDC (2010), suicide is the tenth largest cause of death in the United States. The APNA position paper states that the majority of the approximately 90,000 PMHRN in hospitals across the United States work on inpatient psychiatric units where they provide treatment to persons who are acutely suicidal. Despite that fact, no standard competencies exist that are specific to PMHRNs for assessing and managing suicide risk. Furthermore, the current widely-accepted nursing practices do not meet suicide-specific standards of care or evidence-based practices.

APNA takes the position that, as nurses should practice to the fullest extent of their education and training, and as the reduction of suicidality is a critical dimension of quality of life, it is committed to the development, implementation, and evaluation of standards of care for PMHRNs who care for persons at risk for suicide
