The loss of a team member to suicide has huge impacts for those close to them and also for the medical system in which the person worked, as a whole. During this presentation, we will highlight the interdisciplinary and systemic impacts of suicide, examine available resources and strategies that address ways in which to respond to suicide and unexpected loss in a medical system, and assist participants with developing their own proactive plan for managing suicide and unexpected loss within their home institutions.
- Understand the interdisciplinary and systemic impacts of resident suicide.
- Identify available resources and strategies for responding to suicide or unexpected loss.
