Suicide Investigation: Methods, Notes and More
Suicide is a prevalent health care problem. It is not until we pay attention to their methods of choice, the notes they leave behind and the psychosocial aspects that lead up to successful suicides are we then able to develop and implement healthcare interventions to try to intervene. This presentation will provide information regarding suicides which have been investigated by Forensic Nurse Death Investigators involving many methods, different types of notes left behind, staging behavior and a variety of motives. The goal of this presentation is to increase the knowledge of suicide investigation to forensic nurses so that they may be better prepared to develop and implement healthcare interventions. Case studies will be presented.
