Follow Up Care and Continuity of Care
Continuity of Care is the connectedness between more than one health care provider to another in order to provide for a smooth transition of services and patient information with as little interruption for the patient as possible. This is vital in creating an environment and health plan to keep a suicidal patient safe.
The Suicide Prevention Resource Center in partnership with the University of Michigan created a guide for follow up care. This comprehensive work outlines guidelines for the continuing care of patients after a suicide attempt.
