IMPARTS and assessment of suicide risk in medical settings
Speaker: Dr Jane Hutton, Consultant Clinical Psychologist in Psychological Medicine at King’s College Hospital
Abstract: Integrating Mental & Physical healthcare: Research, Training & Services (IMPARTS) is an initiative funded by King’s Health Partners to integrate mental and physical healthcare in research, training and clinical services at Guy’s, St Thomas’s and King’s College Hospitals, as well as South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. The overall goal of IMPARTS is to improve mental healthcare provision within physical healthcare settings across KHP. The IMPARTS package is designed to support clinical teams in providing timely, tailored, evidence-based care. This talk will provide an overview of IMPARTS, with a particular focus on how we support clinical services in assessing and acting on risk of suicide.
