DPC2021 Conference Programme



Suicide, Self-Injury and Diabetes - a multi-pronged approach by the FDA RESCUE Collaborative Community

11 Nov 2021
Workshop 1

The session will present the results of a survey of healthcare professional perspectives on depression and suicide amongst people with diabetes

  • The vast majority of HCPs believed that routine diabetes visits are an appropriate place for discussions about depression and suicidal ideation
  • Most HCPs are at least moderately comfortable asking patients about self-harm or suicidal ideation, though some were uncomfortable and expressed concerns about lacking the knowledge or resources to provide support
  • Less than one-fourth of HCPs had specific postgraduate training regarding self-injury and suicide
  • Most HCPs had access to social workers and/or psychologists who could address patients’ psychosocial concerns
