Overview 

The Columbia Lighthouse Project provides the Columbia Protocol, also known as the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS), for use in a multitude of community and healthcare settings. This questionnaire is being widely used throughout Rhode Island, therefore all practitioners should familiarize themselves with the protocol, and be able to administer it as needed. During this webinar, practitioners will also get a deeper understanding of the
difference between the full CSSRS versus the Triage version commonly being used within
hospital settings.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for emergency medicine, primary care and family physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, psychologists, and social workers providing routine care to patients. 

Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, the learner should be better able to: 

  • Explain how screening with the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale  (C-SSRS) can be used to identify at-risk individuals.
  • Identify steps to implement a comprehensive screening program that includes targeted and public health approaches to prevention.
  • Describe how utilizing a systemic best practice measurement, like the C-SSRS, to identify suicidal ideation and behavior results in improved identification of at-risk individuals and precision which ultimately saves lives.
  • Outline the types of suicidal ideation and the four behaviors that are predictive of imminent risk.
  • Demonstrate how to administer the C-SSRS full and screener scales including listing long and short term risk and protective factors.
