DOH Approves WSPA and Forefront’s Suicide Prevention Course for Pharmacy Professionals


The Washington State Department of Health has approved WSPA and Forefront’s Suicide Awareness and Prevention Training for Pharmacy Professionals. This three-hour training, developed by pharmacists and suicide experts from Forefront Suicide Prevention, explains suicide statistics and stigma, and provides tangible steps to prevent suicides. It is ACPE accredited for pharmacists and technicians. All Washington State-licensed pharmacists are required to take a DOH approved, three-hour minimum Suicide Prevention Course prior to their 2018 renewal date.

The comprehensive offerings will include:

·         An online course through the WSPA’s Online CE Center will be posted by July 1st, 2017.  

·         A live training for groups is available by contacting WSPA at 425-228-7171 or askwspa@wsparx.org.  

·         Also, an optional, hour-long class with role play and discussion to enhance online training will be available. This will be ideal to provide hands on application during staff meetings, and trainings.

WSPA will be holding a one day train-the-trainer for pharmacists in July. Pharmacists interested in being a WSPA Suicide Prevention Trainer should submit a statement of interest, and a CV highlighting teaching experience to Jenny Arnold (jenny@wsparx.org) by June 20th.

WSPA is proud to partner in the prevention of suicide deaths. Pharmacists are patient-care providers with a critical role in suicide identification and prevention. Also, pharmacists have an increased rate of suicide, so it is important we have the skills to help our peers and colleagues.
