It offered practical advice on how to discuss patient’s suicidal thoughts, but more importantly how to reduce the patient’s risk of suicide. This course should be compulsory for all GPs in training” GP “I now feel able and confident to create and discuss a safety plan for my patient. I feel empowered that by discussing a patient’s suicidal thoughts I can assess them more accurately, will refer patients more appropriately to secondary care, and by discussing simple practical solutions that I can actually reduce their risk of dying.” Senior GP & Trainer  GP feedback SAFETool: “Makes best use of the longer time you need with a patient at risk of suicide & gives more positive outcomes. My assessments are more structured & I now have the language to refer more effectively and the referral pro- cess is more straightforward.” Senior GP
