My notes

  • Seven interventions
    • Public and physician education
    • Media strategies
    • Screening
    • Restricting access to suicide means
    • Treatments
    • Internet or hotline support
  • “Because the heterogeneity of populations and methodology did not permit formal meta-analysis, we present a narrative analysis”
  • They do a very broad search and include other meta-analyses etc. I think it would be more interesting to look at the primary sources e.g. RCTs
