Suicide in the Medically Ill.
Hughes, Douglas; Kleespies, Phillip
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v31 n1 suppl p48-59 Spr 2001
The relationship between medical illness and suicide seems to be multi-faceted. While medical illness is not the sole determinant of suicide, certain illnesses, such as HIV/AIDS and brain cancers, do appear to elevate the risk of suicide. Possible effective prevention efforts include education of primary care providers, and improved medication practices. (BF)
