Suicide risk assessment instruments: PS83-3/392E-PDF
a systematic review of current literature /
“A review of the current literature (2000 – 2016) on suicide/self-injury assessment instruments in use in adult, institutional environments (general hospitals, psychiatric facilities, correctional institutions) was undertaken. Instruments were evaluated based on reports of their reliability, validity, sensitivity, specificity and predictive value. Thirteen instruments were identified for which there was either (1) sufficient psychometric data and estimates of predictive validity available to show evidence of utility in predicting suicidal behaviour and suicide, or (2) evidence of promise or a unique approach in predicting suicidal behaviour and suicide. Among the thirteen instruments identified, two are currently in use in the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) assessment process: the Depression, Hopelessness and Suicide scale (DHS; Mills & Kroner, 2004; 2005) and the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS; Posner et al., 2011)”--Executive summary, p. iv.
