Suicide

It had been a busy shift and you are discussing snacks to make up for a missed break. A call comes in to attend a 43 year old male who is apparently having a hypoglycaemic attack and behaving abnormally. This should be fairly straightforward but something makes you think again …… This issue discusses good practice in the assessment and management of suicidal behaviour, including risk and vulnerability factors, the issue of consent and a summary of mental health legislation as it applies to paramedic practice. It will enable you to use your knowledge to make critical decisions in situations that can be very challenging.
