CAN/HSO 5064:2020 Suicide Prevention – Public Review
The public review for the revision of HSO’s Suicide Prevention standard is taking place between September 25th and November 24th, 2020.
Public reviews are an opportunity for anyone to review and comment on draft standards before they are published. HSO incorporates applicable feedback from public reviews into the final versions of standards.
The updated CAN/HSO 5064:2020 (E) Suicide Prevention standard will specify the responsibilities of system provider health and social services organizations ("system partners") as well as their associated interdisciplinary teams ("people-centred teams" or "PCTs") in preventing suicide among clients in their care settings and community, with a specific focus on the holistic needs of clients and families across their journey to recovery.
Important note: The version of this standard currently out for public review will eventually be incorporated into Accreditation Canada's assessment programs. If you are part of an assessment program, such as Qmentum, your accreditation body will provide you with an update, and copy of the standard, prior to the standard being incorporated into your program and used for surveys or assessment purposes.

The revised standard aims to:
The revised standard contains several updated criteria, including those related to the health system and its role in convening a suicide prevention network; how system partners can collaboratively co-design and deliver services across the suicide prevention network; and how PCTs work together to enable the timely delivery of these services (including comprehensive screening, assessment and care planning) at any point in the client’s care journey and in any setting of care.
