Experimental: Interactive Discussion Group
The interactive discussion groups were held for six times (8-10 persons for each group). During the 50-60 minutes' discussion, the facilitators guided the participants to discuss a case vignette, focusing on the key issues of hospital suicide prevention, and to enhance their abilities of suicide risk identification and evaluation. Two research team members who served as facilitators led the group in a standardized manner.
Other: Interactive discussion group
The investigators adopt the group intervention that provide interactive discussions regarding the assessment of suicide risk among inpatients in a general hospital.
- Correctness rate and the scores of the nurses to identify the risk factors of a case vignette using an assessment tool, the SAD PERSONS Scale. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]The study aims to strengthen suicide risk assessment ability among clinical nurses through training group discussions. In the group sessions the nurses will be facilitated to discuss the suicide risk factors of a case vignette and use an assessment tool, the SAD PERSONS Scale, to learn those factors. The primary outcome measures will be the correctness rate and scores the nurses ascertained in suicide risk assessment of both groups. We hypothesise that the experimental group will have higher correctness rate after the study intervention.
