Brain Hijack Podcast: Time for a Systems Change
Zero Suicide Institute Director Julie Goldstein Grumet spoke on the Brain Hijack: Science to Practice in Suicide Prevention podcast created by the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress (CSTS). The podcast is informed by the Center's STARRS study (Study to Assess Risk and Resilience in Service Members).
Julie is interviewed for Episode 9: Time for a Systems Change.
Did you know that the time after a patient is discharged from the hospital, is one of the highest times for suicide death?
Brooke and Adam speak with Dr. Julie Goldstein Grumet, the Director of the Zero Suicide Institute at the Education Development Center, about how this seemingly counter-intuitive occurrence could be reduced through strategic system changes within hospitals. Dr. Goldstein Grumet goes on to discuss how hospitals could better utilize evidence-based practices that already exist to improve their understanding of which patients are at greater risk for death, thereby increasing their ability to take actionable steps to keep those patients safe.
