abstract

  • The high prevalence, persistence, and incidence of suicidal ideation in medically ill home healthcare patients underscore the relevance of this population for suicide prevention efforts. The clinical and psychosocial factors associated with suicidal ideation in this underserved, high-risk population are potentially modifiable, and thus useful targets for suicide prevention interventions.
