The Suicide Fatality Review Process Webinar

In formalizing data collection after a suicide death, the Suicide Fatality Review Process and suicide surveillance system allow communities to track near real-time trends, determine who in the community is most at risk, and consider systemic changes that could potentially prevent future suicides. In this 90-minute webinar presented by the Commission and aimed at health and public health departments, medical examiners, and coroner’s offices, Dr. Kimberly Repp provided an overview of the process and its implementation. Ron Largusa, MSPH, Kristen Smith, and Dana Murguía, MBA, of Humboldt County’s Core Team also shared their experiences with implementing the process in their county.
