Samenvatting

Oral presentation European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour. Titel: ALARM, a life saving training program for inpatient mental health care staff. Tallinn, Estland (27-30 augustus 2014)

Introduction
Despite precautions, suicide does happen. Sometimes patients are found while attempting to commit suicide and actions can be taken to prevent death. However, finding such a patient, can be so unexpected that it paralyzes and it becomes almost impossible to act. In the Netherlands, in inpatient settings, the police and ambulance are involved when a person commits suicide. Having different perspectives, this sometimes aggravates the already stressful situation. To respond to this problem, a life saving training program for mental health care staff has been developed.

Methods
Public, mental, and emergency health care cooperated with the police in the development of the training. The training consists of information about the impact of suicide (attempts) and coping mechanisms in cases of stress. The role of the police is explained by a policeman and a tool is offered: ALARM, which is practiced with role playing.
For evaluation of the training, the participants were asked to write down their comments anonymously on post-its and to stick these on the door when leaving.

Results
A total of 146 mental health care workers were trained. Most of the participants were registered nurses and social workers, but psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists and security officers were also present. Useful, instructive, confronting, raising awareness and practical were mentioned as evaluative comments.

Conclusion
Participants of the training perceived themselves more able to act in cases of a suicide attempt and found the ALARM-tool very useful.
