Surveillance of Attempted Suicide among Adolescents in Oregon, 1988.
Andrus, Jon K.; And Others
American Journal of Public Health, v81 n8 p1067-69 Aug 1991
Summarizes the first year's results of an Oregon mandate that hospitals report all attempted suicides by adolescents and compares the characteristics of attempted adolescent suicides in 1988 with completed suicides between 1979 and 1988. The best predictor of outcome was the method used; the relationship between method and outcome must be further investigated to increase effective intervention. (CJS)
