Suicide Risk Assessment: Moving from the Impossible to Suicide Prevention
Professor Hawton is Director of the Centre for Suicide Research in the University Department of Psychiatry and Consultant Psychiatrist with Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. Much of his work has focussed on the prevention of suicidal behaviour. In this presentation he will examine the evidence which shows that suicide risk assessment and prediction do not work and highlight the need to focus on suicide risk reduction.
