Effective and multilevel suicide prevention strategies must be developed based on high-quality evidence and public health policy reform

Ghassemi AE, Azadeh Ranjbar P Evidence-Based Nursing 2021;24:105.
Year of publication


Suicide is a major public health concern. Almost 900 000 lives are lost yearly through suicide worldwide, comprising 1.5% of global burden of the disease. The absence of firm standards regarding the quality of evidence and heterogeneity of outcome measures limits the conclusions about the current effectiveness of suicide prevention strategies. D’Anci and colleagues conducted a systematic review to examine the evidence on assessing the benefits and drawbacks of current pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments for persons at risk of suicide.
