Oregon Zero Suicide Fidelity Instrument and Metrics
The Oregon Zero Suicide Implementation Assessment Instrument and its integrated metrics were developed from 2018-2019 by Portland State University & the Oregon Health Authority as a way for local health systems to track progress in their implementation of Zero Suicide over time. In an attempt to attain validity as a measure of the national Zero Suicide framework, these tools were based on EDC’s Organizational Self-Study and the accompanying Data Elements Worksheet.
The accompanying longitudinal assessment process was developed by Portland State University. Funding to develop this instrument was provided by SAMHSA Garret Lee Smith Youth Suicide Prevention Grant (Grant # 1U79SM061759-01). Suggested citation: Cellarius, K., Crane, M. (2019).
