RETHINK: TALKING ABOUT
THURSDAY JANUARY 14TH, 2020 | 1-2 PM MT / 3-4 PM ET
Firearms are the method used in a large proportion of suicides, homicides and non-fatal interpersonal assaults in the United States. Talking about these topics can be difficult, and the language we use in health conversations matters. Healthcare providers may want to counsel patients at risk of violence or self-harm about firearm safety and this session will help them find the language to use. Firearm owners and organizations may also want to help in suicide and violence prevention efforts and this session will help them with language, too. Mutual understanding of language can help clinicians, researchers, and the public better work together to prevent firearm injuries and deaths.
