Collaborative Safety Planning for Older Adults
This brief manual is designed to be used by VA staff members. The manual is a collection of best practices and practical tips for safety planning, with a focus on issues that are common in older adult patients. The purpose of the collaborative approach is to increase the quality of safety plans and the likelihood that they will be understood and used by Veterans. This manual can be used on its own by staff who are familiar with safety planning. Ideally, staff would hold a training to discuss manual content, demonstrate techniques, and answer questions.
The manual is free to the public and can be downloaded below. Use our order form to receive a hard copy by mail. Email your order form to VISN16SCMIRECCEducation@va.gov or fax to (713) 748-7359.
