The PERMANENS research project aims to develop a prototype of a Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) software, designed to assist clinicians in the assessment and care of patients presenting with self-harm in the emergency department. Trained on evidence accumulated in clinical settings and based on the patient’s particular clinical history, the CDSS will provide clinicians with personalized risk profiles for relevant adverse outcomes, including self-harm, method escalation, suicide, premature mortality, as well as discontinuation of care. The CDSS will provide a summary of the most critical risk factors and propose an evidence-based treatment plan, tailored precisely to the patient’s individual risk profile.Know more
