  • Gill Turnbull (a1) and Trudie Chalder (a2)
Abstract

Accident and emergency (A&E) staff completed a general knowledge and attitude questionnaire related to suicide and deliberate self-harm (DSH) before and after a teaching package. The results showed an increase in general knowledge while attitudes remained the same. Following the teaching package there was an increase in the number of patients who contacted the Specialist Service for DSH.
