PTSD and Suicide

leave a comment »

New from Medscape, a CE offering based on an article from the March 2009 issue of Archives of General Psychiatry. Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Heightens Suicide Risk provides .25 AMA PRA Category 1 credits for physicians, free of charge. It doesn’t look like there are nursing CEs attached to this one, though.

Objectives:

  1. Describe the association of posttraumatic stress disorder with subsequent attempted suicide in a community sample of urban American young adults.
  2. Describe the association of exposure to traumatic events without posttraumatic stress disorder with subsequent attempted suicide in a community sample of urban American young adults.

Offering valid through April 6, 2010.
