Past Projects

The Community-Academic Partnership to Prevent Suicide (CAPPS) study was funded March 2021-February 2022 through the Academic/Community Partnership Award provided by the University of Washington Institute of Translational Health Sciences and the National Institutes of Health. The award encourages the development and support of collaborations between academic and community investigators focused on a problem, issue, or intervention important to the community.

This study includes an academic-community partnership between researchers at the University of Washington and the WWAMI region Practice and Research Network, a network of primary care clinics across multiple states. Primary care clinicians and administrative leaders will participate in surveys, qualitative focus groups, and interviews to explore perceptions of barriers and facilitators of provider engagement in a training for suicide risk assessment and management that harnesses remote learning and innovative skill-building technology and use of these skills with their patients.
