Preventing Firearm Suicide: Effect of a Military Health System Intervention for Clinician Training (SECuRe)

Primary Objective

Researchers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus have recently developed SECuRe, a multicomponent intervention to support decision-making around lethal means storage for patients at risk of suicide and train clinicians on how to discuss lethal means safety. We are interested in understanding clinicians’ opinions on the SECuRe intervention.
