From the 7th Annual LOSS Team Conference (April 24-27, 2017)
The theme of the conference was “Strength in Numbers: Engaging the Community in Suicide Postvention”. It provided an opportunity for mental health professionals, first responders, school counselors, suicide loss survivors, LOSS Team members, and others from the community to learn more about suicide postvention and the Active Postvention Model known as LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Team. Featured speakers were Frank Campbell, PhD, LCSW and Stuart Smith, MA, LPC.

Shirley Smith of IfUCareShare said, “Attending the Conference, I have a vision of how our service needs to develop and this came from learning from Dr Campbell, Jill McMahon and Sandra McNally & their colleagues who provide such an invaluable and life saving service through the LOSS team model.”

We are writing to invite you to participate in a study about your loss and the experiences you may have had in contacts with a physician following the loss. We are inviting people bereaved by suicide as well as people bereaved from other causes of death.

At this point, we donít know much about the experience that bereaved individuals have in their contacts with physicians after the loss. It is our hope that your participation in this study will help us to better understand the experiences that people have in contacts with physicians after losing a loved one. We intend to use the results to inform recommendations for physicians as they respond to bereaved individuals following the death.

I hope that you will consider participating in this study. You will be asked questions about yourself, the person you lost, and your experience and perceptions of your contact with physicians after the loss. Participation is entirely up to you. At any point in the survey, you can decide you are no longer interested in participating.

If you are willing to participate, go to http://tinyurl.com/griefstudy. Thank you for considering participation in this study.
