Topic
Pregnancy-Associated Suicide in California, 2002-2012: Findings from in-depth case reviews and recommendations for prevention
Description
Join us on September 5 at 12pm PST to learn about pregnancy-associated suicide in California. The California Pregnancy-Associated Mortality Review (CA-PAMR) project team conducted the largest, to date, in-depth case review of deaths from suicide among pregnant women and among those who were pregnant within the prior year, between 2002 and 2012. This webinar will highlight the key findings, quality improvement opportunities, and recommendations for prevention. While rare, pregnancy-associated suicide is a tragic event that serves as a call to action for public health professionals and maternity care clinicians.

Objectives:
1. To describe the epidemiology of suicide in the perinatal population.
2. To show findings from in-depth case reviews of pregnancy-associated suicide in California.
3. To discuss quality improvement opportunities and recommendations for suicide prevention in the perinatal population.
