    I'm so glad you put this one in there. I use this screening for all new clients and then follow up with them as necessary and appropriate.

    I use this scale also. If I want to use it in SP do I need to make a form like you did? Is there a way to share?

    SP offers no way to export and share a form. You can print it out as a PDF, then copy & paste questions to your own form.

    It would be nice to have the CSSR-S integrated in Simple Practice. It is the gold standard in suicidal screening in addition per their website you do not need special permission to add to their database https://cssrs.columbia.edu/the-columbia-scale-c-ssrs/cssrs-for-communities-and-healthcare/#filter=.general-use.english 

     

    "You do not need special permission from us to take the Columbia Protocol tools and use them in your setting, create your own unique triage next steps, or embed the Columbia Protocol in your electronic health record keeping systems (EHR). We are happy to look at any materials you develop, policies you write or screenshots of your EHR to confirm their accuracy. You can send them to us at posnerk@nyspi.columbia.edu."

    I agree - I think it would be nice to have the C-SSRS integrated into SP - is there any plans for this to be implemented any time in the near future?  I know we can add our own forms, but does seem a bit labor intensive....

    Ryan, in the final question-- rating the potential for lethality, what does the dropdown menu have on it? I can't get it to open via the PDF.

    Thanks for this great resource!

    Hi Chris,

    Good question!  There are 3 possible outcomes:

    • 0 = Behavior is not likely to result in injury
    • 1 = Behavior is likely to result in injury but not likely to cause death
    • 2 = Behavior is likely to result in death despite available medical care

    Wish SP would add it since it is the current standard for suicide assessment!!!
