An Overview of the Evidence Base for InPlace® Learning


An Overview of the Evidence Base for InPlace® Learning

InPlace® Learning by SafeSide Prevention offers a scalable and sustainable approach to educating the suicide prevention workforce. This evidence-based approach leverages over a decade of research to provide teams with a map of best practices and evidence-based suicide prevention skills taught through interactive workshops with ongoing support.

The components of InPlace Learning work together to support learners in adopting a common language and approach to suicide prevention, achieving deep learning outcomes that support practice change.

Evidence Foundation of InPlace® Learning

Expert-led workshops are costly and hard to schedule. InPlace Learning addresses these challenges by integrating various educational components that enhance accessibility and efficacy:

  • Interactive curriculum developed by Dr. Tony Pisani and colleagues enhances skills across diverse clinical roles.
  • Online modules for primary care physicians and nurses demonstrate significant improvements in knowledge and confidence.
  • Scenario-focused video training with group discussions designed by Conner and colleagues for broad application without expert facilitators.

This comprehensive approach to training has shown improvements in participant knowledge, confidence, and practice behaviors in suicide prevention.
